The network's Q4 success was part of a 2013 four-quarter sweep in average audience, with Outdoor Channel out-delivering the second place network by +78%, +99%, +153% and +159% in each respective quarter in total day household averages.

Over the course of the full 2013 ratings year, Outdoor Channel surpassed its closest competitor by +120% in total day average household delivery. In primetime, Outdoor Channel delivered all of the top 50 programs among networks dedicated to outdoor entertainment.


The winter/spring 2014 lineup is already underway and Outdoor Channel fully expects to continue its 2013 success with the network's extensive roster of programming featuring esteemed outdoor personalities and celebrities.
