Q Television Network Strikes First International Distribution Deal - Australia's Selectv
Tuesday November 22, 1:59 pm ET
Digital 24/7 GLBT Channel to be Available throughout Australia and New Zealand

BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 22, 2005--Q Television Network (OTCBB:QBID - News) today announced that it has entered into an affiliate agreement with Selectv, which will become the exclusive satellite provider of QTN programming throughout Australia and New Zealand. As a result of this agreement, the network's groundbreaking GLBT programming will be available to roughly 10 million potential additional households.

QTN recently launched with Cox Communications Eureka/Arcata and Time Warner Cable of New York and New Jersey, which added nearly one million digital households to its distribution. Selectv marks the network's first international distribution deal and a substantial expansion of its consumer reach. QTN began firming up Selectv launch details during the recent MIPCOM, where executives pitched the network's growing signature lineup of original GLBT shows.

"This is an incredibly exciting move for us," said Carol Hinnant, QTN's Vice President, Affiliate Sales & Marketing. "Selectv has embarked on a mission to deliver Australian residents a rich and diverse lineup of international television fare. Our programming will fill a definite void in Australia, where the GLBT audience is just as vocal and involved as it is in the States."

Q Television currently offers its customers five hours of live programming daily, including such hit series as "Brunch," "QueerEdge with Jack E. Jett," "The Reichen Show," "On Q Live," "Q on the Move," "QTN World News," "Xcess/Access," "On Topic" and "Flesh and Threads." QTN is also the official television network for Gay Games VII, for which the network reserves the right to package and distribute for sale to other providers as a pay-per-view event.
