Circle Network has announced it is expanding its streaming territory to Canada through its partnerships with Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel, and LG Channel Plus. Now, viewers in Canada will be able to stream Circle’s original offering of all things country ranging from live performances to intimate sit-down talk shows, travel shows, and more.
Circle Network is still relatively new, launching in the U.S. in January of 2020. The OTA service features weekly episodes of Opry Live where country music fans can tune into live performances from the Grand Ole Opry’s iconic stage in Nashville, sit-down conversations hosted by Clint Black, Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith hosted by Susie McEntire, and more. In July, NASCAR legend Kyle Petty will kick off his new show Dinner Drive with Kyle Petty where he will visit friends like Darius Rucker and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in their hometowns and drive around in their favorite classic automobiles.
“This expansion signals Circle’s successful, initial launch in the U.S. markets and a growing demand for our offerings,” said Circle Network General Manager, Drew Reifenberger. “Since our launch in 2020, we have curated over 25 original series that allow viewers to get to know their favorite artists on a deeper level. There are millions of country fans around the world and we currently reach 153 million of them every month through our streaming partners. We look forward to continuing to expand our reach to better serve them.”
For the Canadian markets, Circle can be found on The Roku Channel on channel 241, Samsung TV Plus on channel 1082, and LG Channel Plus on channel 278. In the U.S., Circle is also currently available on Peacock, VIZIO SmartCast, XUMO, and STIRR, in addition to its distribution with Gray TV.
