Platinum Television Group, PTG Platinum Televison Group disguises itself as a news production company but charges huge fees Deerfield Beach Florida
Platinum Television Group (PTG) tries to pass itself off as a producer of "educational programs" that air on the Hallmark Channel and ABC Family TV. They find your information on the web or in press releases and make you think that some big shot network is interested in your story.
What they don't tell you is that they charge you a $19,000 "licensing fee" for your "segment." Excuse me -- legitimate TV stations never charge any sort of fee like that to anybody. I used to work in TV and I know this for a fact. Any time you hear that there is a fee for distribution of your "segment" RUN the other way.
I called the ABC Family Channel and they had never heard of Platinum Television Group. Furthermore, they told me that they never use those sorts of services for any of their programs.
So please beware of these scam artists. If you want legitimate coverage of your story or your product, hire a reputable PR person or write a letter to your local TV station. You can also make a press release for free on any number of PR websites. You don't need to spend $19,000 to spread the word about yourself.
