The Chello Zone-operated Outdoor Channel has struck a second carriage deal in Sweden.

The cable network will be available via Com Hem, the country’s second largest cable operator, and an HD version will be available on Com Hem’s seven day catch-up service. The channel launched in Sweden last year on TeliaSonera’s IPTV service. It is subtitled in Swedish and Finnish.

First launched in the United States as a linear cable network, Outdoor Channel reaches 35 million households and began expanding globally in 2010 following a partnership between the channel and international broadcaster Chello Zone. It is now available in Russia, Serbia, Ukraine and across the Middle East and Scandinavia.

Its programming is dedicated to outdoor activities such as fishing, hunting, off-road driving and wilderness adventure.
