This business is one of the worst kinds of scams, the "CEO" Joseph Collins uses GOD to lure people, clients and even other Producers and Investors in.
This Company has been trying to get legit for years and years, once they get a bit of funding they bail.  Their original address was in Redlands, then San Bernardino, then Los Angeles and now Gardena.

Sorry case for a Broadcasting gig.  I actually thought they had closed the doors for good this year, but then I ran across a couple bad reviews, felt compelled to do the same.

I am a Producer as well, and this is not how you coduct business, and using GOD"S name to lie to people and get their money is just unthinkable.
I was offered the moon with this company, promised "prime" spots, incredible viewer numbers, and of course tons of money that in reality they did not have, and don't have now.
There are a lot of scammers out there, but PUNCH TV is has to be one of the bigger dishonest ones I know of.
I read the review from a employee, so it sounds like they treat their staff like they treat their clients, like garbage.
Investors beware, current clients pay attention and people in the music industry, stay clear of this place, just a heads up, and my opinion of course, but I was taken, so I am pretty sure you will be too.

They have been pulling the age old tradition of "Bait and Switch" for years now and still haven't been shut down, they just move when the heat gets close.

#4 General Comment

I am an investor where is the IPO

AUTHOR: Stacey - (United States)

POSTED: Monday, March 04, 2019

I invested 2 years ago, you were claiming to be going live on the stock exchange that has not happened yet but I want you Mr. Collins to explain this comment you made.

"When it comes to our investors, we maintain the strict confidence of the people that invest in the company. As of this point have only three investors, and just for your FYI most of the investment dollars in the company have come from my own pocket and I have spent millions of dollars to get here."

I am sure more than 3 people invested in this company I can account for me, my wife and I convienced my son to invest that is 3 there.

Please explain.

Is this a scam

Punch TV Studios Stock


POSTED: Wednesday, December 21, 2016

So if this is a legit company for stock options why isn't there a stock symbol. I heard the stock options on KJLH to purchase stocks for  one dollar. I thought it may be legit since it was on KJLH so I started doing my own investigation. I found that the company has no New York Stock Exchange symbol and the only Board of Directors is Mr. Collins. I also checked out his company social media pages and he does not have a big following. If you are going public you should have somewhat of a following as a company. All of this smells fishy and I was going to invest, but after my findings, like the old sayig is,  if it's too good to be true then it is. Buyer beware. Mr. Collins please do not take peoples hard earned money.

AUTHOR: Punch TV CEO - (United States of America)

POSTED: Monday, March 26, 2012

Under most cases I would never respond to such an accusation. But this is so blatant, until I must respond to this.  We have successfully launched our television network and millions of people tune into it every day and we are very proud of that.  We have managed to secure sponsors such as Dish Network, Lane Bryant, Nordic Trac, ADT Security, Cash for Gold and many others whom have found our services professional and it help them to reach there marketing goals. 

We are not hiding from anyone, nor or we ducking and hiding.  I made the decision as the CEO to move our company to a location that would allow us to be successful.  We have never had an office in Redlands California, and you may check with the State of California to verify that we incorporated in the State of California in the City of San Bernardino which we are very proud of and this is public record.

I made the decision as the CEO to move our office to a location that allowed us to connect to our satellite transponder at a price that company could afford. I make no apologies for moving our company.

We continue to maintain excellent relationships and provide quality service to our clients.  If you are a client then please contact us to discuss our relationship. Our number is 562-424-4597

If you are a producer that has a show or a show idea. We now have a procedure that will allow you to submit a show for it to be reviewed.  Visit our website and follow the submission procedures.  It takes awhile for your shows to be reviewed as we have a full roster of programming now.

When it comes to our investors, we maintain the strict confidence of the people that invest in the company. As of this point have only three investors, and just for your FYI most of the investment dollars in the company have come from my own pocket and I have spent millions of dollars to get here. 

The economy around the world has been in a recession and almost a depression that has had an impact on large corporations and a double impact on small corporations like ours.  Our company is managing to hold on during these tough times with the support of our staff, our clients and our venders.

If these accusations were true the network would not be able to maintain our level of success.

I would like to encourage people reading this report to contact me directly and I will openly address any of your questions or concerns. My number is 562-424-4597
