Cox Communications & Q Television Network Announce November 22nd Launch of QTN in Eureka/Arcata, CA

(Burbank, CA) - Cox Communications, the third-largest cable provider in the nation, and Q Television Network (OTCBB Other: QBID) have announced Q Television's launch on Cox's Eureka/Arcata cable system.

Beginning November 22, 2005, subscribers in Eureka/Arcata, CA will be able to access QTN's live, original and interactive gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender premium 24/7 programming via digital premium channel 399. This move makes QTN the only GLBT network carried in the region by Cox Communications and marks the Network's first Cox launch.

"With QTN's command of original, live and interactive GLBT programming, this network will make an excellent addition to our digital cable lineup," said Wendy Purnell, Cox Humboldt's, Director of Marketing and Public Affairs. "We are pleased to give this region's growing GLBT audience its own premium television network."

Added Cory Sher, QTN's Director of Affiliate Sales & Marketing. "Cox is an outstanding cable provider with a strong commitment to programming diversity. The Eureka/Arcata management team was incredibly proactive in carrying out the company's overall mission to understand, embrace and serve all segments of its customer base."

The Eureka/Arcata, CA launch (Humboldt County) represents a major victory for the region's large and growing GLBT community and further supports QTN's long-term vision to reach GLBT audiences throughout the U.S. The area boosts its own annual gay pride festival, numerous organized clubs, and a strong Humboldt University gay & lesbian student alliance called Queer Humboldt.

"We're real excited to have Q Television Network come to Humboldt County on Cox Communications. Q Television's launch will provide a great source of quality programming and supports the size and diversity of our Queer community," said Todd Larsen, Queer Proprietor and Owner.

Q Television currently offers its customers five hours of live programming daily, kicking off its morning fare with the new show Brunch, which stars Honey Labrador and Scott Withers. The day ends with QTN's signature series On Q Live, a fun-filled adventure of news, guests, sports and entertainment. QTN also offers its customers original programs such as QueerEdge with Jack E. Jett, a live nightly talk show that takes viewers to the farthest reaches of 'Queerdom'; Q on the Move, the first-ever travel show for the GLBT community; and Flesh and Threads, a dance show that brings fashion and the gay beat to the dance floor.
