Punch TV Network Joe Collins signal hill California

Just wondering how many of you have been contacted by Punch TV?

After talking to them, there answer sounded like a smoke and mirrors game. They  are a public traded company, if you search for them on goggle you see press releases "IC Places, Inc. (ICPA) is pleased to announce today its Punch TV
Network has signed on new affiliate, WHPR channel 33 in Detroit Michigan. Punch TV Network will be available on channel 33 over WHPR Television, which is ranked by Nielsen as the 11th market in the US with 1,842,650 TV Homes." this station is a 15kw analog station that I don't thing is even on the air.

They also clam "Punch TV Network giving the company a broadcast TV network available in 50 million households. This network is growing rapidly every month. In August 2012, the network expanded into New York and Houston TX adding 14 million households."

I even had a local viewer call me about some information he got about investing (penny stocks), we searched out the New York station and could find a phone number. I found then on G3 Ku feed, this weekend it was the worst "on air look" I have ever seen, shows don't start on time, a bug up during sport and not in programs, segment of a show repeats, you get the picture.

I think they are trying to get money from investors, and then they will go dark.

Is any body airing there programming?

What Are You Even Talking About?

AUTHOR: Punch TV Network - ()

Ripoff Report is not a place for wondering. It is a place for knowing. Ripoff Report is a place to post a report about a company or organization that has done something to rip someone off. Yet, you are just wondering. You are speculating. You are guessing.

In addition, the information that you provided is completely inaccurate and false. You state that Punch TV Network is IC Places, Inc. Punch TV Network and IC Places, Inc. are two completely separate companies. You have not only made up the entire penny stocks statement but copied and pasted information that you have pieced together and compiled on the Internet and submitted it as fact. Just to cost Punch TV Network business.

In your conjecture, you say, "I think they are trying to get money from investors, and then they will go dark." Well, let's not talk about what we think is going to happen. Let's focus on the facts. Has Punch TV gone black? No. Has Punch TV been off the air? No. Is Punch TV currently broadcasting? Yes. So keep hoping, wishing and praying that one day we do, but until then we will continue to do what we do best and that's WIN! :)
