Q Television Network said Wednesday that it will move its main satellite connection from New Orleans to Fort Worth, Texas, following a deal with Firestone Communications Inc.

The gay- and lesbian-targeted network had been experiencing signal difficulties since launching on RCN Corp. Sept. 8.

Firestone will redigitalize Q’s signal and send it through to RCN for uploading.
