WFN reached its first international distribution agreement in November 2007 with Verizon FiOS in the United States.[1] A few months later, in May 2008, WFN launched a high definition (HD) channel on the American satellite television service Dish Network,[2] called World Fishing Network HD, a channel with a separate schedule from its standard definition (SD) counterpart. The HD channel was then subsequently added to Verizon ViOS that year.[3] Since WFN's launch on both Verizon and Dish Network, it has been added to several other U.S. television providers, including Charter Communications and GTVC.[4] Currently, the HD channel is not available in Canada as no Canadian television provider has agreed to carry it.
