The Angler and Hunter goes High Definition!

Fishing and hunting action will be bigger and sharper than ever

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Assignment Editor, Environment Editor, Sports Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor ONTARIO: O.F.A.H. MEDIA RELEASE--(Marketwire - March 10, 2008) - The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (O.F.A.H.), producer of The Angler and Hunter television show, is proud to announce the show's move to High Definition. Working closely with their production partners and staff, the O.F.A.H. made the decision to stay ahead of the technical norm and move into the realm of High Definition (HD).

"We are very excited to be going HD," says Cam Brownson, Host/Executive Producer of the popular TV show. "We will be able to show you even more great hunting and fishing action - with incredible detail and picture quality. Hunting and fishing will never have been so clear!"

High Definition is the best quality currently available, and ultimately the future of television. An HD image offers a much bigger picture and a much sharper image than current "Standard Definition." Picture resolution to the viewer is at least twice as good as the previous standard, and there is added viewing area, almost three times the size of regular TV.

With consumers moving to flat panel TV's, and more and more broadcasters and networks offering available HD programming, the O.F.A.H. has made the committment to bring the very best to its viewers with the decision to provide The Angler and Hunter in HD.

In the coming months, The Angler and Hunter will begin production in true High Definition and will subsequently be broadcast to its loyal viewers via Global HD. HD will be appreciated by the more than 150,000 viewers each weekend and it is anticipated that the show's audience will grow substantially as a result of the investment in state of the art video technology.

The Angler and Hunter is sponsored by Yamaha ATV's, Mercury, Lund, Ontario OUT OF DOORS, Winchester Ammunition, and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.

With over 83,000 members and 655 member clubs, the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters is the leading fishing, hunting and conservation organization in Ontario and the voice of anglers and hunters. For more information visit www.ofah.org and www.ahtv.com.
