LONDON, England -- January 29th, 2007 sees the launch of the world’s first broadband TV channel dedicated to the mysteries and marvels of the underwater world: www.theunderwaterchannel.tv.

The Underwater Channel.tv is fuelled by the passion of divers, oceanographers, surfers, snorkellers, scientists, students or the simply curious who cannot get enough of the underwater world. The Underwater Channel.tv will entertain, educate and interact with a global audience over the world-wide-web. The soft launch of the channel will be free to air.

Programs will showcase unique and unusual marine encounters alongside underwater expeditions, scientific developments, YouDive video blogs, scuba adventures and in-depth features on scuba destinations. “Viewers can now go underwater without leaving their desks by logging onto www.theunderwaterchannel.tv All aspects of this magical realm will be up for exploration” says Emmy award-winning founder and MD, Nicholas Claxton.

UWC Presenters include prominent diving figures from UK:

  • Miranda Krestovnikoff (presenter of the BBC’s Coast and C4’s Wreck Detectives)
  • Monty Halls (presenter & film-maker - Full Circle Expeditions)
  • Tim Ecott (author of Neutral Buoyancy: Adventures in a Liquid World)
  • Anne-Marie Kitchen-Wheeler (UK free-diving team)
  • Peter Scoones (revered underwater cameraman: BBC TV Blue Planet and Planet Earth)
  • Amanda Ursell (author of Going Down, TV presenter and columnist for The Times)
  • Andrew Pugsley (diver & adventurer)

Join them for exclusive footage of manta rays, world free-diving records, scientific expeditions to the abyss and in-depth profiles of underwater adventurers and photographers.

“I’m thrilled that the concept of www.underwaterchannel.tv has been met with such enthusiasm from so many key figures within the dive community, not just in the UK but in the USA and Asia-Pacific too" says Claxton. "The estimated 20 million divers worldwide are young and internet-savvy. This is the birth of a pioneering venture which will cater for their passion online.”

A pilot edition of the UWC’s output will run for ten weeks and will be free to air for everyone with access to broadband around the globe.

As a video producer and underwater videographer and photographer, I'm interested in all things underwater, especially when it is presented on the internet. Mike Latpew www.laptewproductions.com
