TORONTO, December 23, 2002 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The homosexual TV channel PrideVision has gone broke little more than a year after it went on the air. The network has gradually been forced to lay off half of its staff and put itself up for sale.  “The operating performance of this subsidiary has been below corporate expectations,” said a spokesman for Headline Media Group Inc., the company that owned the network, which the spokesman claims had 22,000 subscribers paying $5.95 to $7.95 a month to receive the 24-hour all-homosexual network.  Some distributors, including cable operator Shaw Communications and satellite provider Star Choice, also controlled by Shaw, chose not to offer PrideVision during a free-view period that helps channels get off the ground. Unlike the other new networks, many of which are bundled, forcing subscribers to take numerous specialty channels whether they want them or not, PrideVision was offered on a stand-alone basis. But the narrow market of interest in materials catering stridently to the unhealthy homosexual lifestyle is the most likely explanation for the failure.  For a Toronto Star report see:  https://www.thestar.ca/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pagename=thestar/Layout/Article_Type1&c=Article&cid=1035775815084&call_page=968867505297&call_pageid=968867505297&call_pagepath=Entertainment,Life/Fashion
