Netflix adds to ‘Diggers’ reach



February 23, 2016 - 12:00 AM

Iolan George Wyant and his buddy Tim Saylor of National Geographic Channel “Diggers” fame, added another level of exposure this month.

Netflix, the online movie and TV network, began airing their show last week. With more than 75 million subscribers, Netflix will provide about one-third of the 66 episodes that have aired over the past four years.

Meanwhile, Wyant is unsure of the future of “Diggers,” which has he and Saylor discovering relics and coins of historical significance. “We’ll know more in a couple of months,” he said. If National Geographic doesn’t renew, “we hope to land a deal with another channel,” Wyant said, or maybe “have our own show on YouTube.”
