Punch TV is excited to give New York City viewers an opportunity to see the shows from our new network, Punch TV," states Steven Samblis, Chairman of IC Places, Inc. "Transforming WYNY 39.2 into a daily must-view 24-hour channel is the just the beginning. Our vision of merging new media with traditional television as we expand our brand experience nationwide is now underway." Joseph Collins, President of Punch TV adds, “We are so very, very pleased that Punch TV offers more original programming than any other network now airing.”
For WNYN in New York City, July has always been a month for growth and development. Founded on July 19, 1991 as W51BV, it is less than surprising that WNYN selected July as the month to begin airing the highly unique programming of IC Places’ Punch Television Network.
In including Punch TV Network among its family of networks, WNYN-LD will expand its reach by attracting an even greater array of America’s new urban viewers - a group that includes not only Latinos, Caucasians, African Americans, and Asians, but numerous subgroups of these populations who are thirsty for newer, edgier, and more original television shows that can be viewed across a multiplicity of modalities.
