BINGHAM FARMS, Mich., February 27, 2014 – Carbon Media Group, the largest producer of digital content for outdoor enthusiasts, announced the launch of its new premium online video network, CarbonTV. This free network will introduce its first original episodes with “Kings of Game” and “Growing Season” starting in early March. Carbon Media Group CEO Hyaat Chaudhary made the announcement.
“Everyone on our team loves the outdoors and we want to connect viewers with the shows that enthusiasts crave,” said Chaudhary. “CarbonTV gives us the opportunity to work with the top personalities and producers to deliver high-quality original programming with an insider’s view of the great outdoors. With the growth of Netflix, Hulu and Roku, we believe the future of outdoor programming is online and we’re in a great position to lead the way.”
CarbonTV.com already houses more than 30 outdoor lifestyle shows from hunting and mountain biking to farming and fishing, including “Buck Commander,” “On Your Own Adventures with Randy Newberg,” and “Heartland Bow Hunter.” All content is free and users can sign up to be notified as soon as new episodes of their favorite shows are posted. The network will continue to expand and add more original shows over the course of 2014, drawing on Carbon Media Group’s knowledge of the outdoor industry.
Many of CarbonTV’s shows come in short, 8-10 minute episodes designed for mobile viewers. Each of the original shows pairs the outdoor lifestyle with compelling characters and high-end production:
Kings of Game
From wolves in Idaho to bass in Florida to pigs in Texas, Kings of Game follows the adventures of the Holeman brothers as they track, trap, hunt and catch some of the country’s wildest game. It also follows the brothers’ Florida-based fishing business and the trials and tribulations of their efforts to work, travel and hunt together. The first season is currently available on CarbonTV and new episodes for the show’s second season (currently in production) will kick off March 2 with a new episode every other week through July 27.
A family farm in Anselmo, Nebraska is the setting for season 1 of Growing Season—a nine-episode journey through a year in the life of the Bartak family. This behind-the-scenes look inside the agricultural community shows the personal struggles and successes of modern farmers. The first episodes will be airing on March 4, continuing every Tuesday through the end of April.
