Newsmax TV, the nation’s fastest-growing news and information cable channel, has expanded its cable/satellite TV reach with a new carriage distribution agreement with DISH.
Starting today Newsmax TV is available on channel 216 to DISH customers who subscribe to the pay-TV provider’s America’s Top 120 and above programming packages — bringing Newsmax’s national cable and satellite footprint to 50 million U.S. households.
Newsmax TV has had tremendous success since its launch in 2014 as a 24/7 cable news channel and has quickly established itself as the only independently-owned news service targeting Baby Boomers with a heartland perspective on the events impacting their lives.
"DISH is one of the biggest satellite operators in the nation and we are proud to be carried on their system," Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy said. "We believe DISH subscribers want more cable news choices, and we have demonstrated that Newsmax TV is bringing in new viewers who want more than the conventional news lineup."
At a time when news is in more demand by television viewers, Newsmax TV consistently offers important viewpoints not covered elsewhere, and continues to add talent to an impressive lineup that includes JD Hayworth, Brett Winterble, Howie Carr, Wayne Allyn Root, Todd Schnitt, Joe Pags and Jesse Lee Peterson.
Newsmax TV is already home to 12 hours of original news content daily with programming focused on breaking news, talk and analysis.
The channel gives viewers the opportunity to engage the shows via call-ins, skype and social media video and live chat feeds. The channel also provides practical health, finance and lifestyle segments, as well as news documentaries during overnights and weekends.
In addition to DISH, Newsmax TV is available on DirecTV 349, AT&T U-verse 1220, Verizon FiOS 615 and more than two dozen cable systems around the nation.
