GoPro might be known just as much for its own action videos as its is for its cameras — and now GoPro fans can expect even more videos. Today, the company announced the launch of the GoPro Channel on Red Bull TV.

Earlier in May, GoPro teamed up with Red Bull to distribute high quality video content worldwide. The GoPro Channel is the next step in that partnership. Red Bull TV is available via smartphone, tablet, and desktop as well as via smart TVs and other devices such as Apple TV and Roku.

To mark the official release of theitsir channel, GoPro released a three-minute behind-the-scenes trailer of The Fourth Phase, a follow-up to the two-minute teaser released on August 25 about snowboarders Travis Rice and Eric Jackson in Alaska’s back country. The movie follows the two snowboarders on a 16,000 mile trek around the Pacific and officially releases on Red Bull TV on October 2.

Along with The Fourth Phase, the GoPro Channel offers exclusive original content both featuring and captured by Red Bull’s extreme athletes from surfing to biking. The channel also features the four-part series Chasing El Nino, which follows pro skier Chris Bencshetler along the west coast. Two Roads, another GoPro series, this one with 11 pieces, shares the story of 11 different athletes and one coach, covering multiple sports. Content from Rachel Atherton’s 10th consecutive UCI Mountain Bike World Cup win, and rooftop jumping with pro rider Danny MacAskill are also now available on the new channel.

According to GoPro, the action camera’s content and the Red Bull name have been synonymous since the first cameras were released fourteen years ago. The new channel features new content as well as older content epic enough to be considered legendary, according to GoPro.

The new channel includes footage from adventure sports commonly associated with GoPro’s videos, including surfing, mountain biking, snowboarding, and skateboarding, as well as more unusual but still very much extreme adventures like rooftop jumping and bridge climbing. The GoPro channel is available on Red Bull TV via the web or apps for both mobile and smart TV platforms.

GoPro Hero 10 Black leak reveals images and specs
GoPro Hero 10 Black.

Images of the GoPro Hero 10 Black leaked yesterday, giving us our first look at images of the device along with specs. WinFuture, a German publication that previously leaked information about the redesigned Hero 9 Black in August last year was also the source of the latest leak.  A report on the website suggests the Hero 10 Black looks similar to its predecessor (Hero 9 Black) in terms of size, design, and external accessibility features. The only design difference so far can be seen in blue accents that spell out "10 Black." 
The major hardware changes we're seeing are improvements to processing power with the new GP2 processor and an improved image sensor that beefs up from 20-megapixels to 23-megapixels The Hero 10 Black is also expected to support 5.3K video recording at a smooth 60 frames per second (fps), 4K videos at 120 fps, and 2.7K videos at 240 fps. The last one can help you create high-resolution slow-motion clips. This is a considerable improvement over previous models that only supported 5K recording at 30 fps and 4K recording at 60 fps. 

Marketing materials seen by WinFuture hint that Hero 10 Black’s in-camera software stabilization will see an improvement to offer "gimbal-like stabilization", after being upgraded to HyperSmooth 4.0 and TimeWarp 3.0 for time-lapse videos. Users can also enjoy an auto-upload function to transfer files online at a much quicker speed. The Hero 10 Black also supports 1080p live streaming, the same as previous models. Finally, the Hero 10 Black is said to offer 10 meters deep housing, touchscreen controls, and voice accessibility. Users can also access the webcam mode along with SuperPhoto and HDR options. These features combined with the improved recording capability have the potential to be a gamechanger for streamers and on-the-scene photographers. 
The company hasn’t made a formal announcement so we don’t know how much the Hero 10 Black would cost. The previous edition, Hero 9 Black was released at $450 and is currently priced at $400 (excluding the subscription), so we can expect a number around this range, perhaps a bit higher. Given the scale of the recent leaks, the launch of the Hero 10 Black is likely to be imminent.
