Our Land TV/ Hugh O’ Brien


Press Release via AS Written, August 2022


OUR LAND TV will begin to air in November

Cork based HUGH O’ BRIEN – founder and host of Hot Country TV, Europe’s longest running country music show, broadcasting for the last 13 years – has announced a brand new TV channel called OUR LAND TV which is set to launch in November, broadcasting on Virgin Media Ireland Box (a noteworthy first for Irish country music and agriculture), channel will be in every home in Ireland , SKY TV in UK, Ireland and across Europe, free-to-air satellite, and worldwide via the Hot Country TV app. With studios in Cork, Dublin, Belfast and Scotland, OUR LAND TV will produce top quality original content. The channel will be dedicated to agriculture, country music, and general entertainment. 

By providing an important and essential platform for country music, the new channel will fill the void left by the departing Spotlight TV. However, OUR LAND TV will do much more than simply replacing like-with-like. In what will be an innovative first, the new channel will also place a huge emphasis on country life in general, with agriculture, country music, wedding suppliers and tourism playing leading roles in the new OUR LAND TV schedule.

The Hot Country TV frontman has recognised that now is the time to seize the moment and show the world exactly how and why country music and the country lifestyle are – and have always been – so closely entwined, with the Corkman pointing out, “The bond between country music and country life has always been there”.

“But it’s a link that we can and should strengthen still further”, he continued. “Country music happens around country life, and country life inspires and influences country music. Bringing both even closer together makes perfect sense for all involved. Not only will we have a number of weekly flagship country music shows, but also similar flagship shows produced specifically for and aimed towards the farming industry.”

The 11th Annual Hot Country TV Awards Concert will take place on April 4th 2023

Shows planned include some focused on animal health, farm safety, mart reports from UK and Ireland, farming in Scotland, latest farm machinery, grants and subsidies available, and also a weekly chat show presented by a household-name who is an ex-RTE star, and lots more.

Hugh O’ Brien was able to confirm that OUR LAND TV will also include a daily promotions and teleshopping element, a factor sure to enhance the new channel’s already obvious appeal to fans of anything and everything country related.

He continued, “This is the kind of platform that I’ve long believed is needed. And I’m excited to be bringing it to life with the partners who have already come on-board. OUR LAND TV is going to be an exciting opportunity for anyone to be involved in”.
