Hilversum, Netherlands – INSIGHT TV, the world’s largest UHD broadcaster and producer of native UHD HDR content covering action sports, entertainment, and lifestyle, has today revealed a major distribution deal with next-generation U.S. cable company Layer3 TV. This is the first 4K UHD distribution deal that INSIGHT TV has signed in the United States. The agreement means that INSIGHT TV is now available to Layer3 TV subscribers on channel 115 in Denver, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Dallas in 4K UHD, launching with high-profile shows such as King of the Hammers, Life of Cards and Secrets of the Brain.
“Layer3 TV is proud to be INSIGHT TV’s charter launch partner in the United States,” said Lindsay Gardner, Layer3 TV’s Chief Content Officer. “Insight TV is a trailblazer in the 4K space, and Layer3 TV subscribers will enjoy the compelling 24/7 linear channel and accompanying 4K On Demand library.
