here a cut and past from the Confrence call note the key words i highlighted


Debra: Is there were any planned mergers or buyouts and if so, when?

Frank Olsen: Well, the doors always open for something but nothing is planned right now, but the doors open because nobody is going to turn down an attractive deal, but we have to prove ourselves a little more before that happens. I think we're ready for the next question.

Does everyone know who Jimmy Buffet is ?

Do you know how he made his BILLIONS of DOLLARS ?

Jimmy Buffet believes that if you BELIEVE in a COMPANY (stock) then STICK WITH IT ! Do your DD and hold them long for PROFIT you know they will make.

In other words DONT SELL YOUR SHARES too early. Dont listen to BASHERS !

i agree nice way to end the week.


i still can not get out of my head the thoughts that viacom may be on our side.

there are hints all over and every time i think of it i get a funny little smile on my face. that feeling that money is not to far away. That eases my mind every time i think about it.

there was a time when i thought what the hell i can afford to loose this money. Now i don't even consider it a possibility. This thing is going to be something great. I have not fallen in love with the stock, but i have realised that there is only one real destination for this company. that destination is going to be i


n 55 percent of the US market.

this thing has more potential then the BET network had. this is going to be huge. Frank knows exactly what he is doing and already knows what the outcome is going to be. He has told us that it is going to be every bit as successful as we think it is going to be.

He has the talent, the know how and the backing to get this to be the best GLBT channel out there. Why? because his heart is in it and he knows what the market wants to see. He is going to make this happen as he has been knee deep into the gay community for many years. he knows what they want he knows what they need and best of all he is giving them exactly those things that they desire in a GLBT network.

He has surrounded himself with the best of the best in the business. He is pulling out all the stops. look at all the media attention we have received in just the last couple of days. This thing is still in its infancy and it is already being talked about on all the major papers, news and talks shows. folks we are going to see things in the next few months that are going to step this up even more.

I see us securing a major carrier before summer, and being listed on a big board before the end of the year. I can see many major investors jumping on this in the very near future. People are looking for the next big stock, and i believe that this is the one that they will realise is going to make them the large returns. We are on this boat at a really good entry point, and i can see where many now holding this stock will never have to work again.

JMHO

have a great weekend everyone, and will talk to you all over the weekend.

......there are many possibilities.

Media companies compete but contract with each other--Viacom's MTV, VH1... on Comcast, Warner and just about every other carrier's list.

Why invest when you can contract?

Why not invest and let the money pour in from contracts?

I know Warren Buffet with Birkshire Hataway, Inc. has Billions. I don't think Warren can carry a tune.

Q TELEVSION AGREES TO COVER GAY DAYS WEEKEND EVENTS
ORLANDO - For the first time ever, Gay Days Weekend coverage will be broadcast daily on a national satellite television network.

GayDay . com has signed a sponsorship/partnership agreement with Q Television to offer live broadcasts daily from Orlando. Representatives from GayDay . com were recently at the Q Television Network studios in Dallas discussing Gay Day weekend on the network’s live Out on Q show. The network is also considering producing a documentary on the history of the 15-year-old event.

Q Television now covers all of the nation’s gay rodeos and has signed a partnership to televise the Gay Games in Chicago next summer. The network has also recently signed agreements to broadcast in Canada and Australia, with additional plans to be on Direct TV in the near future. The GLBT television company recently signed a nationwide carrier deal, bringing the network’s programming to 16 million potential viewers by June 1.

The agreement, with Products On Demand Channel Inc., will make Q Television's signature programming available to 107 stations. Q Television programming will be shown two hours daily in an effort to continue the national interest shown by carriers as well as potential subscribers. The signature programs available to be shown in its entirety are Q Television's incredibly popular, Q on the Move and In Focus, two programs that are anticipated to be shown on an unscrambled basis.

Thanks for the nice comments, I just read on IHUB and if I see news like this I bring it to you. I appreciate all the news you all bring to the board as well. I am so excited to be where we are on entry in Q. I don't believe we will be here much longer...IMO. Also like whiz says all we have to do is launch. Then I believe we will be the GLBT communities priory network.(i.e.NBC,or CNN) We all are going to be "Rich". I can't wait until it's not just a name...LOL. The guys at work always ask me how it feels to be Rich..Smarta$$' LOL

This is worth posting again and again. Now we need confirmation of this via a PR from the "Q". Look out soon as there will be no stopping the "Q".

NEW YORK -- Verizon today announced a long-term affiliation agreement with Starz Entertainment Group LLC (SEG) for the SEG premium movie channels and services.

Local women help new network
BY RICK FOSTER / SUN CHRONICLE STAFF

ATTLEBORO -- Family values were a priority when partners Veronica Welch and Kelly Cinelli started their public relations and marketing business four years ago.

But that hasn't stopped the up-and-coming businesswomen from taking on a controversial client: The Q Television Network, billed as the nation's only TV service produced by and for gays and lesbians.

Welch, who was pregnant at the time, and Cinelli, wanted to create a business that they could nurture at home while caring for their growing families.

The pair used their writing and people skills to land public relations accounts with a growing number of clients ranging from biotech to homeland security firms under the banner CWR and Partners LLP.

When a mutual acquaintance facilitated a contact between CWR and the fledgling network last year, Welch and Cinelli were energized.

"This was a great opportunity for us to help launch a network," Cinelli said. "We weren't about to walk away from it."

Welch said she considered the implications of working for a gay network in a polarized political climate and decided that she owed it to her children.

"I didn't want to think about them looking back and thinking that I had been judgmental," she said.

CWR and Partners promotes news coverage about the network and fields media inquiries, the same services it provides to most customers.

Q Television network officials were interviewed recently by CNN, CNBC and the Associated Press as well as USA Today.

Some of CWR's other customers include Eagle Broadband, a Texas-based communications company; Advance Viral Research, a biotech firm, and SLS Loudspeakers, a cutting age audio equipment company.

Q, which went live last October, is already operating on a 24 hour, seven-day-week basis and is available by subscription only. About 25 percent of its programming is original.

The channel is currently negotiating with a number of potential cable carriers and is already available in Boston. Welch said plans are already underway to broaden carriage elsewhere in the northeast, including southeastern Massachusetts, and an announcement may be forthcoming as early as next month.

In promoting Q Network, CWR has been quick to differentiate the channel from Logo and Here!, existing networks featuring gay-oriented programming.

Q will be available only on a pay channel basis and will be scrambled so that non-subscribing households don't see it. The network will also steer clear of stereotypes and exploitation, sticking primarily with news, talk and gay lifestyle-oriented shows.

The network is also hiring gay talent, producers and support personnel to make its shows.

Q was devised by gay Seattle businessman Frank Olsen, who saw an opportunity to lift the quality level of television aimed at gay consumers. Scattered gay-oriented programming often were being made on a shoestring by gay talent who were "paid nothing," Olsen said.

"We wanted to do shows that looked like NBC," he said.

While gay themes and characters are emerging in increasing numbers on conventional and cable networks, Olsen said many have been tailored to emphasize general audience stereotypes--with a premium on crotch-grabbing.

"That's not who we are," Olsen said.

Instead, Q focuses on gay attitudes and lifestyles with such shows as "Q on the Move," a program that visits locations around the country to focus on gays in those regions; "Women On Women," focused on lesbian issues; and "Paradise Falls," a gay-oriented soap opera.

In FoQus, a biography show, has already done a close-up on Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, and "Q on the Move" plans to visit Providence in the near future in a visit that will include a talk with Mayor David Cicilline, who is openly gay.

To promote subscriptions and carriage on major cable systems, Q recently signed a deal with Products On Demand Channel Inc. to telecast "Q on The Move" on up to 107 stations. The show will include an infomercial aimed at potential subscribers and cable providers.

Mack it is rumoured from a message a couple weeks ago on the IHUB board. Know one knows for certain. the dots all connect to make the assumptions but at best we can tell it is a rumour. We can not verify or nullify the validity of the rumour.

hope that helps

Dont buy or sell on my opinions, do your research. Make sure you know what you are buying before you buy.

This is a non reporting pink sheet with very high risk. From high risk comes high rewards.
Dont invest more then you can afford to lose.
