Media Gems Eyes Cable Movie Net


WENR Corp. subsidiary Media Gems said Tuesday that it has begun talks on a potential new cable network.

The company is in discussions with privately held cable company Satview Broadband Ltd. with the aim of testing a network consisting of movies from the Media Gems library.

Satview would add the channel to its lineup and advertise an 800 number at the bottom of the feed at the end of movies, asking viewers to call the number if they liked the network.

Media Gems has more than 15,000 titles in its library.

Satview is a provider of satellite services to private apartment complexes, housing developments and hotels in Nevada and California, and the company operates franchise cable systems in those two states.
