Eight, yes eight, new channels are launching in various cable markets

TDS is bringing the Olympics, movies, comedy-drama series and adventures in the wild to you with the launch of eight new channels in our cable markets.  Check out these great new channels that are or will soon be part of your cable channel lineup.

Sundance TV
Showcasing today’s creative icons and the talent of tomorrow, TDS Telecom®  is pleased to announce that SundanceTV is now in most TDS cable markets.

Formerly known as the Sundance Channel, SundanceTV features the award-winning series Transparent, an American comedy-drama series that features actor Jeffrey Tambor. In addition, SundanceTV airs documentaries, Academy-Award winning films, independent feature films, short films, world cinema, reality series and news about the latest developments from each year’s Sundance Film Festival.

SundanceTV launched in the Family Tier in standard definition. Click here to see what markets and channels.

Olympic Channel
We’re switching gears—well, channels—to something we think you’re really going to like.

You’ve had Chiller, a channel devoted to horror/thriller TV shows and movies for a while. Based on the viewership, however, it seems most of you aren’t big fans. We decided it was time to find something better for everyone. And you know what everyone loves? The Olympics!

Enter the Olympic Channel. Starting Sept. 29, you’ll find it on Channel 299 in the Family Tier, except in Arvada and Cortez, Colorado.

The Olympic Channel is brand new and just started broadcasting here in the United States last month. Their tag line is “Where the Games Never End” and there’s a good reason for that. Now you can see all the things you enjoy about the Olympic games all year long.

Fox Sports 2
Starting Oct. 17, Fox Sports 2 is being added to some of TDS’  cable markets. The channel features reruns of some of the news and analysis programs broadcast by Fox Sports 1. Sports programming includes UFC-related programs (Ultimate Fighting Championship), including UFC Unleashed and live UFC Fight Night events, and overflow coverage of events aired by Fox Sports 1, such as NASCAR and the UEFA Champions League. Limited coverage of the Australian Football League moved to Fox Sports 2 from Fox Soccer Plus, along with full coverage of the State of Origin series live from Australia’s Nine Network.

Ion TV
If you live in St. George or Cedar City, Utah and you have our Limited Basic TV package, you now have access to Ion Television (KUPX).

In St. George, you can find Ion on channel 19 and in Cedar City, you can find it on channel 16. This change affects both residential and business customers. Ion Television’s programming schedule features a number of popular TV shows, including “Saving Hope,” “Blue Bloods,” “Criminal Minds,” “Psych” and “Law & Order.”

Nat Geo WILD
Customers in our Woodland Park, Colorado market, will soon see the power of science and exploration up close with the launching of Nat Geo WILD on the Family Tier on Channel 251. Through the lens of some of the world’s best filmmakers and scientists, catch a glimpse of the beauty of nature on this global channel.  Nat Geo WILD will launch in Woodland Park on Tuesday, Oct. 17.

IFC
Customers in Estes Park, Colorado now have the IFC network. Scripted series on the channel include: Portlandia, Brockmire and Stan Against Evil. In addition, flashback in time with these IFC series: The Monkees, That ’70s Show and The Three Stooges.

IFC’s slogan: Always On, Slightly Off. Enjoy IFC in Estes Park in the Family Tier on Channel 239.

Fox Sports Arizona
TDS launched Fox Sports AZ in both SD and HD in the Expanded Basic Tier on Channel 66 and the Basic High Definition Tier on Channel 135 in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Get the latest regional sports teams, scores, stats and more from Fox Sports Arizona.

Big Ten Network
The Big Ten Network has launched its network in St. George, Utah and Estes Park, Colorado in the Family Tier.  What’s on the Big Ten Network? Well there’s football and lots of it.

There’s “Big Ten Elite” and “The Journey.” One gives you the complete story about great football and basketball squads in the history of the conference and the other gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the teams.

There’s “Campus Eats” that highlights unique restaurants (with a few attractions thrown in for fun) found in different Big 10 communities (which, we’ll remind you, is actually 14 different cities since there are seven teams in the East Division and seven in the West).

There’s also shows about wrestlingbasketball, and female athletes.
