Outdoor Channel, America’s Leader In Outdoor TV, today announced that the outdoor lifestyle cable network was presented with the American Cable Association (ACA) Partnership Award at the annual Members Meeting as part of The Independent Show in San Diego.
“On the heels of our recent CableFAX accolades, Outdoor Channel has yet again been recognized for our commitment to supporting a healthy industry for independent cable operators – this time by the ACA,” said Randy Brown, Outdoor Channel’s Executive Vice President of Affiliate Sales and Marketing. “As an independent cable network, we are a proud member of the ACA as they play a vital role ensuring that growing networks such as ourselves have the ability to influence our legislative and regulatory agenda.”
The ACA works to ensure cable, phone, and fiber-to-the-home operators and municipalities are treated fairly in the marketplace and in Washington, so that small and medium-sized independent operators may continue to thrive and deliver affordable video, broadband, and phone services to Main Street America. Now in its eighth year, The Independent Show is an invitation only confab co-hosted by the ACA and the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC). Each year, the Partnership Award is presented to an associate member for demonstrating dedication and support to the mission of the ACA, and to the success of independent cable businesses for contributing to their growth.
“One of the fastest growing independent cable channels in the past year, Outdoor Channel’s success is a testament to the power of our industry in connecting with small town audiences who are passionate about entertainment that reflects their lifestyles and interests,” commented Matthew Polka, President and CEO of the American Cable Association. “Moreover, the Outdoor Channel organization has been consistently supportive of our association and our mission to ensure that small and mid-sized cable operators can continue to deliver the content and services that millions of consumers in rural America deserve.”
Outdoor Channel is a 2013 sponsor of The Independent Show, as well as an exhibitor. For more information on the company, swing by booth #203 on the show floor.
