Social Responsibility Network’s GunTV to air across the USA on April 1, 2016
Hockessin, Del. (March 31, 2016) – Social Responsibility Network LLC and GTV Live Shopping LLC, are launching GunTV, a television shopping network for firearms and related consumer goods, on April 1, 2016. The network will air across the country on a variety of cable networks and television stations. The new GunTV website, www.guntv.tv, will be launched simultaneously.
“We are very excited to bring our new concept of shopping for firearms and accessories to live television. Our unique platform allows industry manufacturers to showcase products through our talented and experienced on-air hosts. Viewers will receive in-depth, entertaining product demonstrations, and see the products in action, an important component of the purchasing decision.” said Valerie Castle, Managing Partner of GunTV.
GunTV will initially air 7-days a week from 1AM to 7AM EST and plans to scale the network to a 24/7 broadcast schedule. Leading manufacturers will be featured with product demonstrations punctuated with three minutes of firearms safety public service announcements every hour. The network will also provide a superior level of service through highly trained and knowledgeable customer experience representatives recruited from the veteran and former law enforcement community who will assist GunTV customers with making purchases over the phone and online.
“We understand that the more informed we are as consumers, the better purchasing decisions we make. At GunTV, safety is our number one priority. GunTV offers education, information and safety regarding firearms, and we follow all local State and Federal Regulations. GunTV does not ship firearms directly to consumers. All firearm orders are fulfilled by a Federal Firearms Licensed Dealer, and all firearm purchases through GunTV are subject to background checks.” said Ms. Castle.
