September 26, 2019

Carp Wars 2, the hit series from Fishing TV, is now live and free-to-air on Sports Channel Network (SCN).

This adds to the archive of fishing content that SCN has been building since February 2019 with the UK broadcast rights acquisition of Carp Wars and The Fishing TV Show. Carp Wars has been a consistent high performer in terms of audiences for SCN.

Carp Wars 2 consists of 16 new episodes featuring a few familiar faces and a few new ones. Lining up in the race for the Carp Wars 2 title are some of the biggest names in carp fishing including Ian Russell, Dave Lane, Lee Morris, Iain Macmillan, Dave Levy and this year’s rookie, Steven ‘The Preparator’ Coe who qualified by winning a special Eliminator episode.

Ed Burgass, Commercial Director of Fishing TV said: “We are delighted to work with Sports Channel Network who can give us a unique free to air platform in the UK which is both HD quality and widely accessible. SCN is a great partner to reach a wider public on linear TV which complements our own successful VOD platform. We are happy that SCN wants to become a destination for UK fishing fans.”

Paul Coster, CEO of SCN added: “We are excited to be showing Carp Wars 2 and working in close co-operation with Fishing TV, who see the benefits of a partnership approach when building awareness and reach in sport.”
