LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- Players Network (OTCQB: PNTV), a Digital Television, Technology and New Media company that develops, owns, and operates Branded Lifestyle Channel Destinations, announces today a joint venture with DMH Media Network who owns TRUE Magazine to create "WeedTv Magazine." The first step in creating the magazine will be a 6 page special "WeedTv" insert within the August issue (www.true-magazine.com). This 6 page special will be directly delivered to 367,082 subscribers and promoted throughout TRUE Magazine's Hip Hop Lifestyle database combined will pass along copies reaches over 2,606,000 readers. The companies' joint goals are to eventually incubate the initial insert into a stand-alone full-length publication.

DMH specializes in a vast targeted market with its brands. TRUE Magazine the oldest running title with 15 years of producing and showcasing Hip Hop, will be the leading brand to infuse WeedTv into its own platform with magazines and e-zines. TRUE Magazine has worked with "as cover artists," Jay Z, Kanye West, Rick Ross, Game, Nas and many more. TRUE Magazines recognizes the lifestyle of artists showcased and the social part of the Marijuana lifestyle covered by Weed Tv.

Noble DraKoln, Chief of Business Development for DMH stated, "DMH stays on the cutting edge of Pop Culture with a focus on Hip and RnB. With the surge in legalization of Marijuana across the United States we see the 'Cannabis Culture' as one of the fastest growing marketplaces that will open up extraordinary sponsor and advertising revenue potential. WeedTv offers a phenomenal opportunity to DMH to enter this marketplace and use our existing consumer base to drive viewers. It was very important to us to see that Players Network, the owner of WeedTv, is an established broadcast company with existing distribution relationships that would extend and expand our brands. We look forward to working with the Players Network and WeedTv team to grow this opportunity and eventually launch a standalone WeedTV magazine."

Mark Bradley, CEO of Players Network stated, "To say we are excited about DMH would be a significant understatement. They are an ideal partner to develop the "WeedTv Magazine" as well as to help us develop new promotional campaigns and contests to build audience and subscription membership in the future. Having the WeedTv Magazine allows a perfect vertical media extension that will be cross promoted, where viewers can both read articles in WeedTv Magazine or go to WeedTv and watch a related video story. Bradley adds, having two complementary media platforms and one with a mature loyal readership developed by TRUE of 15 years will offer immediate increased opportunities to our advertisers and sponsors.
