The channel's roots began in Canada on December 2, 2005, when it was launched under the ownership of Insight Sports. The company expanded the channel in the United States in November 2007 with its launch on Verizon FiOS as a standard definition channel.[1] A few months later, in May 2008, WFN launched a high definition (HD) channel on Dish Network,[2] called "World Fishing Network HD", a channel with a separate schedule from its standard definition counterpart. The HD channel was added to Verizon FiOS that year.[3] Since WFN's launch on Verizon and Dish Network, it has been added to several other television providers such as Charter Communications,[4] and television providers in the Caribbean, including Flow Cable in Jamaica.[5]
