Soccer and other global sports are increasingly popular in every region of the United States, especially among our core audience of hard to reach 18-34 year olds,’” said Randy Brown, executive vice president, distribution, of ONE World Sports.
Stamford, CT (PRWEB) March 02, 2015
In the latest of a series of carriage deals for the rapidly growing network, ONE World Sports, America’s Network for Global Sports, today announced that it has signed multiyear, multiplatform agreements with the cable TV and multiplatform distributors Service Electric, enTouch and Paul Bunyan Communications.
“Soccer and other global sports are increasingly popular in every region of the United States, especially among our core audience of hard to reach 18-34 year olds,’” said Randy Brown, executive vice president, distribution, of ONE World Sports. “Our recent agreement with the NCTC, which opened the door to these latest launches, reinforces our growing industry support.”
Service Electric serves subscribers throughout Lehigh Valley and Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania as well as Hunterdon, New Jersey, and surrounding areas. Paul Bunyan serves Bemidji and Grand Rapids, Minnesota, while enTouch serves the greater Houston, Texas area.
The three transactions were enabled by ONE World Sports’ recent agreement with the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC), of which the three companies are members; the agreement paved the way for the network to become available to all of the cable cooperative’s nearly 1,000 member cable distributors throughout the United States.
One World Sports provides more than 3,000 hours annually of exclusive best-in-class sporting events – including baseball from Japan, basketball from China, cricket from England, ice hockey from Europe and Russia, and golf and soccer from around the globe.
The NCTC is a not-for-profit corporation that operates as a programming and hardware purchasing organization for its member companies who own and operate cable systems throughout the USA and its territories.
