For Immediate Release:

Premium 24/7 GLBT Channel Now Available in Five of Nation’s Top 10 Markets

BURBANK, CA & NEW YORK, NY – December 8, 2005 – Underscoring its continued expansion throughout the United States, Q Television Network (See OTCBB Other: QBID) has announced its launch on the Time Warner Cable Houston system. Houston area digital cable subscribers will be able to access QTN’s live, original gay and lesbian programming as a 24/7 premium network on channel 537, effective December 13, 2005. With this move—QTN’s fifth Time Warner carriage deal—the network now has distribution in five of the nation’s top 10 markets.

“Research has shown Houston's significant gay & lesbian population to be among our most valuable audiences in terms of new product penetration and favorable demographics," said Greg Calvert, Time Warner Cable's Director of Marketing in Houston. "However, it's an audience that has long been underserved with relevant television programming. QTN has developed an impressive slate of live and original programming, and we believe the audience will respond to that. We're very enthusiastic about the addition of QTN to the Houston channel line-up.”

Just two weeks ago, Q Television announced its launch throughout Time Warner Cable of New York and New Jersey, with previous launches on Time Warner’s Rochester, Syracuse and Maine divisions all within the last four months. The Houston addition will extend QTN’s reach by roughly half a million digital cable households.

Added Carol Hinnant, QTN’s Vice President, Affiliate Sales & Marketing, “It is our continued goal to reach out and entertain GLBT communities where they have been underserved in the past. Time Warner Cable has done a fabulous job of connecting with all segments of its customer base, and we look forward to working with them to serve the Houston market.”

In addition to movies, documentaries and original series, Q Television currently offers its customers five hours of live programming daily, including such hit shows 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.” In June, Q Television featured a live broadcast of Houston's wildly popular nighttime pride parade as part of its 24 hour marathon of pride parades from six U.S. cities.
