Sportsman Channel and DISH Network Collaborate To Support Gulf Region Recovery Efforts

Sportsman SD and HD Now Available as A la Carte Option; New Subscriber Proceeds To Support Gulf Coast Fund & Coastal Conservation Association

New Berlin, WI – Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, today announced the network is available in both SD and HD as an a la carte option on DISH Network Ch. 395. In an effort to raise awareness and funds for Gulf regions working to recover from the recent oil spill disaster, Sportsman Channel will funnel this year's proceeds from the a la carte pricing to a special "Sportsman's Fund" created with the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) to benefit Gulf coast habitat restoration and research. CCA is one of the largest non-profit marine conservation groups in America.



To help support and bring awareness to these efforts, DISH Network is offering a free preview of Sportsman Channel Sept. 3 – 28. Additionally, Sportsman Channel and its parent company, InterMedia Outdoors, are utilizing all print, on-air and digital assets to further promote the cause.


Outdoor enthusiasts can subscribe to Sportsman Channel a la carte by visiting www.dish.com or calling (800) 894-9131. Sportsman Channel and Sportsman HD launched in DISH Network's America's Top 250 package in February 2010.


"Because we're donating our monthly fee to CCA, every new Sportsman Channel SD and HD a la carte subscriber on DISH Network is helping Gulf region sportsmen, families and wildlife," said Sportsman CEO Gavin Harvey. "We are proud to join DISH Network and CCA in this drive to raise money and also to raise awareness that Gulf communities still need our support."

CCA has worked closely with government and regulatory agencies since the beginning of the Gulf oil disaster to ensure the Gulf's habitats, fishing industries, marine life and resources are adequately represented and supported. CCA's history and experience in marine habitat restoration and coastal conservation will continue to be a vital component in the recovery and restoration of Gulf marine resources.


"We are thankful to have this unique partnership with Sportsman Channel and DISH Network that helps to raise awareness and vital funds to restore the Gulf of Mexico," said Pat Murray, CCA president. "There are some very positive programs and signs of progress occurring throughout the Gulf, but there is still much to do. This generous program will be an important part of restoring and enhancing the Gulf's fragile habitats."
