If you tuned in to Nik Wallenda’s 2013 live tightrope walk over the Grand Canyon, you were in good company. The special garnered about 13 million viewers for Discovery.
The network has a similar live event scheduled for some time yet to be announced in May. This time Discovery viewers will be invited to watch Joby Ogwyn attempt the first wing-suit flight off the top of Mount Everest.
In addition to wing-suit piloting, Ogwyn, an American who splits his time between California and Italy, is a world-renowned alpinist and BASE jumper.
Discovery Channel is available to all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.
