(NASHVILLE — June 20, 2016) RFD-TV and the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC) announced today that they have entered into a multi-year distribution agreement, which allows over 800 video service providers across the United States the opportunity to launch the network. RFD-TV, whose stated mission is to reconnect city with country, is the only national cable network that serves the needs and interests of rural Americans through programming devoted to the rural and western lifestyle.
“RFD-TV has had a relationship with a vast number of NCTC members for many years. Indeed, these independent cable operators helped solidify our standing as a successful, independent network. Our partnership with NCTC offers an exciting opportunity to further the relationship with member operators not currently carrying RFD-TV and RFD HD,” stated Peter Clifford, RFD-TV’s head of distribution.
This is the latest in a long list of recent accomplishments by the Rural Media Group. The network recently announced that Mediacom would carry RFD-TV in HD system-wide. Additionally, RURAL RADIO Channel 147 on SiriusXM is now available to more than 30 million subscribers. For more information about RFD-TV, visit rfdtv.com.
