Los Angeles, CA- A mere 25 years ago, the American public was primarily dependent upon three networks - , ABC, CBS, and NBC - as the central sources of their television entertainment. Indeed, NBC was the recipient of an Emmy in 1986 for the comedy, Golden Girls, while CBS walked away with the Emmy for the Drama, Cagney and Lacey, and ABC observed in silence as it awaited the 1988 Emmy in comedy for the Wonder Years. In October, 1986, Fox Television launched serving as a symbol of change that has now matured into an era which now includes more than 30 networks. Moreover, with the proliferation of sub-channels that has accompanied the digitization of television, the American public is, on a daily basis, confronted with a confusing array of networks and channels, most of which are unfamiliar to the average viewer.
Given such a complex industry with its multiplicity of viewing choices, why would anyone create still another viewing option that can fragment the viewing audience even further? Joseph Collins, President and Chief Executive Officer of one of America’s newest networks, Punch Television Network (PTVN), argues that the technological change in the world of television has created an opportunity for greater responsiveness to consumer choice.
Other Punch TV offerings are equally unique. For those who enjoy entertainment that reflects a historicity, PTVN offers Shadow Hills, a post-Buffalo Soldiers historical drama that, though fictional, is historically accurate and authentic. Another very different type of drama that Punch is airing beginning Sunday, January 2 at 2:30 pm PST and 5:30 pm EST is the weekly soap, Get Thee Behind Me. This one-hour drama chronicles the exploits of a group of brilliant mobsters while seeking to answer the question, “Is redemption possible for those who have strayed so very far from the laws that govern society and their own souls?”
However, one of the most unique type of programming that PTVN brings is stories by the people of America for the people of America. PTVN has a segment in which it airs videos submitted by people who have had life-changing experiences that can encourage and support others (PTVN only requires that the videos be produced using an HD camera). Viewers are encouraged to contact Dish Network and or Direct TV and ask them how to access Punch Television Network.
