Premium movie outlet Encore has acquired the rights to air several classic Westerns from CBS TV Distribution, including "Gunsmoke" and "Rawhide."

"Gunsmoke" will return to TV in January on the company's Encore Westerns channel, with "Have Gun Will Travel" and "Rawhide" airing sometime next year.

"Our Westerns viewers are made up of true and diehard fans of the genre," said Nancy Silverstone, vice president of program acquisitions for Starz Entertainment. "They were devastated when 'Gunsmoke' went off the channel four long years ago. The series is still relevant today as it was over 50 years ago."
