HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- URBT has been in negotiations with Warner Bros. to provide urban programming for the network. As a part of the deal URBT Network, along with sister company Punch TV Studios, will have access to the Warner Bros. urban library. The deal comes in time for the Q1 2016 launch of the URBT Television Network (OTC:URBT).
Such shows as "Amos and Andrew" starring Samuel L Jackson, "The Cleaner" starring Cedric The Entertainer, and more than 200 hours of urban programming will be made available to the URBT Network (OTC:URBT) upon the completion of negotiations.
"This is a significant partnership for our company," says Joseph Collins CEO of URBT Network and Punch TV Studios, "Warner Bros. is a premiere brand. This partnership will give Warner Bros. additional distribution into markets they are not currently reaching, and this should make it easier for the URBT Network to attract television and cable affiliates. URBT Network is planning to launch into more than 60 million homes in Q1 2016 and this deal now positions our company to be a true competitor."
Industry veteran Mark Corcoran says, "A deal between Punch TV Studios, URBT Network and Warner Bros. (NYSE:TWX) is going to be a game changer for those that may have any doubt that the URBT Network is going to be hot."
