Q Television Network to Launch Throughout Time Warner Cable of New York and New Jersey
Monday November 14, 9:05 am ET
Digital 24/7 Gay and Lesbian Channel Available November 17, 2005

BURBANK, Calif. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 14, 2005--Q Television Network (Pink Sheets:QBID - News) today announced the launch of QTN throughout Time Warner's largest cable system -- Time Warner Cable of New York and New Jersey. Beginning November 17, 2005, digital customers will be able to access QTN's live, original gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) programming as a 24/7 digital network, Channel 326.

Q Television joins here! and LOGO to round out a trio of unique GLBT programming choices available through Time Warner Cable of New York and New Jersey, one of the first systems in the nation to offer all three networks. This news is yet another victory for GLBT residents in the New York City DMA, which is the largest gay market in the nation.

The New York/New Jersey deal marks Q Television's fourth launch in a Time Warner Cable Division. The network launched on Time Warner's Rochester and Syracuse systems last month and the Maine Division in July 2005.

"We are extremely pleased to add Time Warner Cable of New York and New Jersey to our growing distribution roster," said Carol Hinnant, QTN's Vice President, Affiliate Sales & Marketing. "Distribution is imperative to any network's growth, and to be launching in the nation's largest DMA clearly signifies QTN's advancement in the industry. Time Warner Cable of New York and New Jersey has done a wonderful job of recognizing and serving the GLBT audience and is to be commended for its leadership within the cable television industry."

Q Television currently offers its customers five hours of live programming daily, kicking off its morning fare with the new hit 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.

Time Warner Cable of New York and New Jersey serves customers in four NYC boroughs (Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island and western Brooklyn), Mt. Vernon, Hudson Valley (Orange, Sullivan, Ulster Counties and parts of Dutchess, Greene and Delaware Counties) and Bergen and Hudson Counties, N.J.
