Cox, Comcast Pick Up Q Preview


Gay- and lesbian-themed The Q Television Network’s previously announced signal test Saturday will get some cable carriage.

Cox Communications Inc. in New Orleans will carry the five-hour sneak preview on its Channel 10, while Comcast Corp. will carry it on KHCV-TV in western Washington.

The New Orleans carriage will be available in more than 250,000 homes, while 1.6 million Washington homes will have access to the Q preview.

As far as satellite, the network previously said that its signal will be sent out in analog format and will be viewable to all C-band dish owners. After the test is concluded, The Q will revert to a digital scrambled signal.

Parent company Triangle Multimedia Ltd. Inc. changed the network’s name from Triangle Television Network last month.
