Triangle Television Network to pitch cable systems
During the next two weeks, the Triangle Television Network will be making presentations of its library of gay and lesbian family programming to Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Adelphia Communications, Comcast, and Charter Communications. TTN president Frank Olsen explains that the company "seeks to make its gay and lesbian programming available through the largest cable carriers and satellite companies immediately. Our goal is to fast-track TTN's gay and lesbian family programming, which has been well received by the marketplace and has experienced strong demand for wider accessibility since its preview of September 7." If it makes a successful nationwide launch, TTN would be entering a suddenly crowded marketplace for GLBT cable, with proposed new networks from Viacom and MDC Entertainment Group as well as a possible U.S. launch for Canadian digital network PrideVision.
