Southern and Eastern Ontario, We're Back!!
- You wrote, you called, you faxed, and as of March 1, 1998 we are back on the full Rogers Community Network in Southern and Eastern Ontario! That means in addition to our broadcast in Metro Toronto on Tuesdays at 10:30pm, you can catch us Sundays at 11:30pm in places like London, Ottawa, Mississauga, Newmarket, Guelph, Brampton, Kitchener, Waterloo, Stratford, Oshawa, Whitby and Ajax (and of course Toronto). For those of you who are used to catching our repeat broadcasts on Saturday nights, please note the change to Sundays.
Thanks to all who contacted Rogers in support of the show, and we hope you'll let us know how we're doing. We look forward to bringing you stories from all over Queer Ontario. (98.02.16)

- Starting March 1, 1998, our weekend time slot moves from Saturdays to Sundays, although we're still on at 11:30pm. This change is being made to allow our broadcast to be carried on the full Rogers Community Network in Southern and Eastern Ontario. (98.02.10)
10%-Qtv Web site now searchable
- With two and a half years and 47 episodes of television under our belts, we've covered a lot of stuff! Researchers into queer media and our viewers have asked us for a better way to dig through our show catalogs, and today we are proud to offer them a search engine at this Web site. Just click the Search button and dig away darlin'! (97.12.29)
"qtv" Email Woes (November 19-25, 1997)
- Our Internet service provider's new Email server took a hissy fit this past week. As a result any Email sent to email@example.com or feedback via the online form between November 19-25 is probably as lost as Rob Lowe's innocence. Sorry, sorry, sorry, and please resubmit anything sent to us during that period. (97.11.26)
"OPERATION: GETTING BACK OUR VIEWERS"
- During our first season (1995/96) we were carried across the entire Ontario region that Rogers Cable serves. Slowly and quietly, Rogers affiliates outside of the Toronto area have dropped our show, apparently because of a few angry letters from folks who don't think much of queer people. Well friends, it's time for us to stand up for ourselves...
As of November 18th, we are launching an appeal to those of you served by Rogers Cable in Ontario to tell your local affiliate that you want 10%-Qtv back! Our Executive Producer has started us off with a letter to the President of Rogers, and now it's your turn. Find out who your local Programming Manager is and send them a letter. Let them know that queer people are a part of your community, and how important it is that they be represented on your community channel.
Thanks for your support!! (97.11.18)
10%-Qtv Launches its New Web Site
- Completely redesigned and with a new (and easier to remember) Internet address, the new 10%-Qtv Web site is "on the air" at 10percent.interlog.com [Note: Link has been changed to archived website]. Complete with descriptions of every segment in the show's two (almost two and a half) year history, plus information on future episodes, the site provides everything you need to know about Canada's only weekly queer TV program. Special thanks to the folks at Interlog Internet Services for hosting our new site. (97.11.16)
Welcome (back) Viewers in Mississauga and Etobicoke
- Rogers Cable customers in Mississauga and Etobicoke asked for the return (our 1996/97 season was carried there) of their queer TV in September 1997, and we're happy to say that as of October we're back on the air in that area. If you're a Rogers subscriber in Southern Ontario and you're not getting 10%-Qtv, ask for it!
"10%-Qtv" Returns for its Third Season
- 10%-Qtv (formerly "Cable 10%) begins its third season on Tuesday, September 16, 1997 at 10:30pm on the Rogers Community Network (check your affiliate for details). With new Betacams, a new second (repeat) timeslot at 11:30pm on Saturdays, and new energy, this season promises to be the best ever.
