Dish, Sling TV Expand, Add Circle Network Programming
Dish and Sling TV announced Thursday that more of Circle Network’s country-flavored music, lifestyle and entertainment content has been added to the satellite TV provider’s “America’s Top 120” package and the Circle Network is soon to be be added to Dish’s Sling TV over-the-top live streaming platform as well.
Dish said the additions “mark one of the largest distribution partnerships for the newly launched network.”
Circle launched in January 2020 and currently lists a viewing audience of more than 150 million globally. The channel features more than 16 original series featuring popular country music and cross-over pop stars including Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, Pitbull and Kristin Chenoweth.
The network’s top series, Opry Live, launched during the pandemic “as a way to bring the Grand Ole Opry’s Saturday night performances to country fans around the world and has since been viewed by over 55M fans and secured the No. 1 position on Pollstar’s Top 100 Livestreamers Chart for 2020 across all genres,” the company said.
Circle first appeared on Dish and Sling TV in May 2020 with Opry Live and is now making all of its original programming available to customers, from Dinner Drive with Kyle Petty to Songs from the Cellar with Phil Vassar and Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith with Susie and Reba McEntire.
“We are pleased that Circle has found a home on Dish and Sling TV, and that our regular viewers who have tuned into Opry Live each week are now able to access Circle’s entire slate of original programming,” stated Circle Network General Manager, Drew Reifenberger. “This partnership with Dish and Sling TV unlocks a key distribution goal for Circle that allows us to serve a passionate group of country lifestyle fans.”
Dish satellite TV customers will find Circle on channel 370 offering access to original country tinged content, including: Hee Haw, Talking in Circles with Clint Black, Big Kenny’s Crank it Up Garage with Big Kenny, Authentic America, The Dailey & Vincent Show with Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent, and others.
