Quincy Media Leverages Subchannels To Add Primary Nets to Some Markets

By | Subchannel Report


Quincy Media, Inc., formerly known as Quincy Newspapers, Inc., is a family-owned media company that originated in the newspapers of Quincy, Illinois. The company’s history can be traced back to 1835, when the Bounty Land Register was one of four newspapers in Illinois. Over the next century, a number of mergers followed. The company moved into radio in 1947 and began television broadcasts in 1953.

It is owned by the Oakley and Lindsay families of Quincy.

Duplicated Subscribers- Cable, overbuilder, and/or satellite subscribers counted multiple times in a market depending upon how many .1 channels for full power and LPTV-cable stations and for those subchannels with verified MVPD subscribers. Subscribers partly estimated using FCC COALS data and Census data.

Cable Companies Distributing COMET

Comet draws from the extensive library of films and television programming owned by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and subsidiary United Artists, carrying more than 1,500 hours worth of sci-fi programming from the studio.

The network’s programming consists of content from science fiction and related genres, with a mix of theatrically released feature films and select off-networkseries from the 1960s to the 2000s (such as Stargate SG-1 and the 1990s revival of The Outer Limits). This gives Comet a more distinctive format than that commonly found on other multicast networks such as MeTV, Antenna TV and Decades, which maintain a general entertainment programming format.
