Yes, it’s about that time for UBC-TV to take off to the next level.  My team and I have used this year to set some strong foundational things in place that will insure that you all will take a look at what we have and where we are going. Its about taking one step at a time.

Not going to say much right now besides GET READY!!

Its about that time!!

Its about that time!!

My Thoughts On The TV Industry and Why UBC-TV Has To Be Different

Hey All, well it is time for me to begin to reveal our upcoming cable line-up for our UBC Original Programs. I am going to start with the programs that are created and produced by UBC. We are also going into some great co-production alliances and have some outside content coming to us. Our first goal is to get the UBC Originals out first and then go to the next phase which will include co-productions and outside productions.

Needless to say this is a task where you have to have Hercules on your team!! Its extremely difficult to launch any new media business today.  Technology has made it easier to shoot content that is broadcast quality but the cost are still there if you are in fact entering into an arena with other major companies who have established footprints.

This is where you have to plan your work and work  your plan so to speak. I have always said to my team that we will do this in a way that will give us a voice that is different than others by producing original programming versus just being like everyone else with the same programs but different channels.  I actually think television has gotten worse over the years. There are those shows that stand out with great writing, cast, production, etc. but they are becoming far and few between.  Lets not even discuss the lack of people of color in the industry STILL. One or two hits shows with African Americans do not even the playing field. There is a major void of our ‘Stories’ that are not being told. This is where the behind the scenes in the industry count the most. The deals that are being made are being made with people in authority who either do not understand culture, too young to know better or just don’t care. This is where some major change is needed.

Companies like Youtube, Amazon, Netflix and others are doing well. They are giving viewers something that is relevant and cutting edge. They have become the alternative to the regular broadcast wheel.  I see that trend growing even more and my company UBC is in the midst of it all.  My vision has always been multi-platform from years ago.  I have also said that original content is the way to go but as you know it takes a lot of work to do this and you really have to have a really good production plan. I feel now is the time for UBC-TV.  UBC has become more than TV.  I have been able to create some very exciting alliances and partnerships that will be very surprising to everyone.   Over the next few days, weeks and months we will begin to do our program reveal along with our distribution footprint information and some other very exciting ventures we are undertaking.

When I begin this journey I just wanted to launch a cable network; now it has turned into a multi-media company with different divisions that will be rolled out at different time frames.  All I can say is hold on to your hats!

One of the first shows to debut is called ‘UBC JAMS!’. I created this show with the intent of showcasing up and coming artists in multiple genres of music. The show will be live streamed and then shown on our cable channel.  Dates, times for the show will be announced soon. Please go to our Facebook page and give us a LIKE so that you can keep up with all that is going on with UBC.  Its http://www.facebook.com/UBCTVNETWORKS and our website is http://www.ubctvnetwork.com. Its evolving every other day as we move forward in adding new content. We also have Club UBC, so be sure to sign up for it as we will soon start to launch our contests, free tickets to events, concerts, coupons and much more!

I will be back with more info on all that we are doing and more on our line-up and distribution.  Thanks to all of you who have kept up the support as now we will embark upon our next step into the spotlight!
