New Kid on the Block is HOT

There's a new Web Based TV Station (less than a year old) - RECtv. Concepted and created by COS Productions, Readers Entertainment online television is focused on offering readers a web channel directed toward their entertainment. They have several genre specific channels and some really outstanding content, like a five minute video of Magic Johnson, author interviews, industry news, the hilarious comedy "Lonesome Loosers" and the most awesome Book Trailers® ever!

Sheila Clover English said, "We wanted to have a station that offered all genres in a variety of ways. We have video, but we also include blogs and podcasts. Soon we'll have a forum as well! . . . Our originals shows have brought in a lot of new fans! We are about to do another season of The LonesomeLosers, which is about a couple of cute-but-nerdy guys giving out love advice using romance novels, but we're creating a new series called MUZE and will have other shows coming at the end of the summer."

But RECtv isn't just a vehicle for videos produced by COS. They're incredibly inclusive. Sheila explains their generous attitude, "Reader's Entertainment tv is different from a lot ofother online book tv sites because we will take anyone's video. We have a Guest Book Video channel where anyone can have their video. You just need toput your video on Veoh.com and send us the link. We don't charge for placement as a way of being supportive to the community."

Cool, huh? :)
