OUTtv to share programming

Deal with U.S,-based here! includes feature films and series Dante's Cove

Toronto’s OUTtv has signed a programming and supply deal with U.S.-based here! Network that will see the gay- and lesbian-aimed channels sharing new series this fall.

OUTtv, which recently sold nearly 60 hours of programming to here!, will air the U.S. channel’s Dante’s Cove — which stars Canadian Charlie David, costar of OUTtv’s Bump! — and feature films.

Last year, the two worked together to produce the gay detective films Ice Blues and On the Other Hand, Death, as well as the documentary Martinis & Murder: Inside the Donald Strachey Mysteries.

OUTtv is also launching a new website at www.outtv.ca, which features clips, highlights, extras, blogs, newsletters and other programming info. COO Brad Danks says the site was ‘designed as a fully functional broadcasting platform.’

OUTtv has more than doubled its subscription base in the past two years and now has over 500,000 subscribers across Canada.
