Singapore – Outdoor Channel (Asia) announced that they have further expanded their programming collaboration with ESPN in Asia.  Under the deal, Outdoor Channel will broadcast a number of key franchises from ESPN’s catalogue across Asia-Pacific, including ESPN hit series Search4Hurt, recently launched series World of X Games, ESPN’s annual winter sports flagship event Winter X Games, and the critically-acclaimed Kenny Mayne’s Wider World of Sports.

The move follows ESPN and Outdoor Channel joining forces earlier in 2014 to air the IndyCar series and X Games series in Asia. Through the deal, Outdoor Channel will also promote ESPN’s fast growing digital services, including the recently revitalised ESPNFC franchise, across the region.

Gregg Creevey, Managing Director, Multi Channels Asia, said, “Our initial programming partnership with ESPN has garnered a lot of positive feedback and we see this expanded cooperation as a way of deepening that relationship. We are committed to continuing the promotion of IndyCar and X Games as well as building a greater following in these new franchises and working closely with ESPN to better serve passionate sports fans across the region.”
