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.
