The Ski Channel Television Network to Launch on AT&T U-verse TV on June 2, 2009

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 2, 2009

Steve Bellamy, Chairman and CEO of The Ski Channel and AT&T* today announced that The Ski Channel Television Network will be available to all AT&T U-verse TV customers on June 2nd in the free On Demand library. It was also announced that Universal Pictures "First Descent" starring snowboarding Olympic gold medalist Shaun White will make its television debut that same day.

"There are only a handful of television networks that bring the quality of viewing experience of The Ski Channel," said Bellamy. "You are skiing the steepest fall lines in Alaska one minute with incredible theatrical releases like 'First Descent,' hanging with the coolest athletes at a posh ski resort the next and then stepping off a 2000 foot cliff while para-gliding in the Himalayas. Our next phase is getting this great service in more households. Combined with our other distribution, our availability on U-verse TV puts us in nearly 20 million homes. Considering we have only been on the air for a few months, we are extremely happy."

"This is a great addition to the U-verse TV On Demand library," said Richard Wellerstein, AT&T Vice President On Demand Programming. "U-verse TV customers will be able to enjoy this compelling content for free before many cable customers."

First Descent produced by Universal Pictures and primarily shot in Haynes, Alaska documents five of snowboarding's greatest riders including Shaun White, Hannah Teter, Nick Perata, Shawn Farmer and Terje Haakonsen all with different reasons for tackling the most extreme slopes the planet has to offer. "First Descent" has some of the best cinematography in the filmmaking with dramatic helicopter shots of riders stepping off slopes that are virtually like riding down the sides of skyscrapers.

Numerous large brands have stepped up to help drive awareness to the film on The Ski Channel including Mountain Dew, Panasonic and REI. "'First Descent' is a spectacular film," said Andy Nelkin, President of Panasonic. "The Ski Channel is the perfect targeted network to give the film the broad distribution it deserves."

The Ski Channel is an original, free ad supported network delivered on cable, satellite and IPTV services, web, wireless and other means of distribution. It is the only television network devoted to the wide variety of year round mountain activities such as skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, backpacking, climbing, etc, along with many off-slope activities. The Ski Channel's content will inspire and inform audiences with magazine shows, movies, events, ski news, weather and programs that focus on destination travel, equipment, instruction and real estate. Its corporate partners include: Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, DirecTV, AT&T, Brighthouse Networks, Verizon, Panasonic, Marquis Jets, Fender Guitars, Mirage Resorts, Rage Films, Ride Guide, Teva Mountain Games, Level One Productions, Skiers World and Olympic Gold Medalist Jonny Moseley.
