LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2014) - Players Network (OTCQB: PNTV), a Digital Television, Technology and New Media company that develops, owns, and operates Branded Lifestyle Channel Destinations.

Dear Shareholders, we wanted to take this opportunity to update and recap you on Q1 and Q2 advancements:

  • June 2, 2014 - Players Network announced a joint venture agreement with DMH Media Network to produce WeedTV magazine including a 6 page special insert in True Magazine.

These milestone accomplishments are about building a world-class team to monetize branded digital assets. Real Vegas TV and WeedTV are the first two Lifestyle Channel Destinations for Players Network. The business model can be summarized as using niche program content and social media dynamics to attract an audience to the PNTV NextGenTV (sm) Enterprise platform. This audience then becomes consumers and members to drive revenue through both traditional advertising models as well initiating consumers' transactions with relevant products and services for additional merchandising, premiums, subscription memberships and ancillary revenue opportunities. Players Network has already secured a program licensing agreement with M3X for over 15,000 titles to launch multiple Lifestyle Channel Destinations. Each Channel has the potential to be its own MTV, Speed Channel, Food Network and so on. The Players Network platform allows for the development of unlimited niche Channel Destinations.

Review Initiatives for 2014.

  • Make the NexGenTV platform available as a white label solution and through partnerships to companies seeking strategic media, technology, and distribution capabilities. This is a turnkey digital solution for companies that Players Network is currently in active negotiations on for several new channels.
  • The Company was successful in keeping the Comcast complaint in Nevada Federal Court which will expedite proceedings. The Company is committed to obtaining equitable compensation from Comcast for failing to meets its contractual obligations and Players Network will continue to pursue this complaint.
  • Continue to expand and Networks. Real Vegas Tv will also contain a series of sub channels that will be incubated and eventually spun off into their own networks. Some of these Sub Channels will include Electronic Music, Culinary, Comedy and Alternative Living Networks genres. In addition to these incubated networks other stand-alone categories are planned for 2015 such as Extreme Sports, Medical, Science, Wellness, Country and much more.

Players Network will continue to develop unique content to attract audience such as our first concert series with Wiz Khalifia & Friends Spring Break Concert that will be soon airing on WeedTv. It is important to remember that the Company has a proven track record of generating over 125 million views across platforms. The opportunity for WeedTv is extraordinary as a first mover in this explosive industry. It is also important to remember that "weed" or "cannabis" is both a social community as well as medical for seizure patients, pain remediation for cancer victims and raw materials for textiles and manufacturing materials and that WeedTv provides a target opportunity for sponsors. This is only one of the Channel Destinations we have launched, developing or selling to new business partners as a white label solution for their digital go to market strategy. This is an exciting time for Shareholders and the Company's Management looks forward to reporting even greater success and milestones completed to grow revenue and increase shareholder value.

Thank you your support and belief in what we are creating.
