DENVER (August 31, 2020) MeatEater with Steven Rinella has been a perennial favorite with Outdoor Sportsman Group viewers since its debut seven years ago. Season 8 of MeatEater premieres on Outdoor Channel with a weekday strip beginning November 2, 2020. The series will then be available on all Outdoor Sportsman Group Networks – Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, and Sportsman Channel Canada.

Season 8 of MeatEater premieres on Outdoor Channel on Monday, November 2 at 8 p.m. ET.

While the half-hour, Season 8, debut will take place on November 2, viewers with subscriber video on demand (SVOD) capabilities and MyOutdoorTV (MOTV) can catch all of MeatEater’s first seven seasons on the popular SVOD platform.

“Fans of outdoor lifestyle television know Steven Rinella and MeatEater,” Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO Jim Liberatore said. “Having MeatEater seen on our North American Outdoor Sportsman Group Networks (Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, and Sportsman Channel Canada), as well as MOTV, is as big as it gets. We couldn’t be happier to continue our relationship with Steven and his team. We look forward to many more years of collaboration.”

Rinella, who grew up hunting, fishing and trapping in the Midwest’s great outdoors, always viewed the world through the eyes of an ancestral hunter/gatherer. Inspired by early man’s skill, ingenuity and sheer determination to survive and thrive under challenging circumstances, Rinella has made his life’s work to cultivate those same qualities – and encourage others to do the same – while always being mindful of conservation principles and practices.

In MeatEater, Rinella explores various hunting techniques, tracks and pursues prey, and procures and cooks his harvest. No matter what part of the country Rinella is hunting, he leverages his back-country skills by challenging himself at every turn and providing nail-biting adventure along the way.
