Business News has learned that the first showing of a fishing program about Lake Seminole, filmed on Lake Seminole, is to take place on the Outdoor Channel (available locally on Comcast, Direct TV and Dish Network but it may take a special order by phone if you don’t get the channel already—call your provider) on Tuesday, January 28 at 11:30 a.m. Central time, according to an Outdoor Channel spokesperson. Other showings will be on Saturday, February 1 at 3:30 p.m. Central and on Sunday, February 2 at 7 a.m. Central. The program will be run again in April. According to Chuck Lockey, who operates Chuck’s Video in Marianna and is an exclusive Dish Network dealer, the program will be on channel 396 on the Dish Network but not everyone is a current subscriber to that particular channel. But if you have the Dish Network, you can call 1-800-333-3474 and order it in minutes, Lockey said. If you have Direct TV, you can call 1-800-DirecTV. Comcast can also take an order over the phone, if the cable service is able to.
The program, called Fishing University, was filmed by pro bass fishermen Charles Ingram and Ray Brazier several weeks ago during a special visit to the Sneads area. They also appeared at Sneads High School to talk about careers. Ingram and Brazier are representatives of the Tuff Line fishing equipment outfitters and others.
The program is not available online—not yet. Debra Talley, vice president of program development for the Outdoor Channel, told Business News Wednesday morning that the Tourism Development Council in Marianna will have a tape of the program after it airs, put that will be for private viewing only. The program may not be shown publicly, or on any other TV channel for one year, she said. For more info, call the channel at 800-770-5750 or visit www.outdoorchannel.com. Available all over the U. S., the Outdoor Channel is based in California and owned by KSE—Kroenke Sports Entertainment LLC.
