GunTV, a new television shopping network devoted to firearms and related consumer goods, officially launched amid great fanfare on Friday, April 1. The network will air nationwide on a number of different cable networks and television stations. An official website for the venture has also gone live.
“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,” Valerie Castle, Managing Partner of GunTV, said in a press release.
The network will air seven days a week from 1:00 AM to 7:00 AM EST, with plans to expand to a 24/7 broadcast schedule. Top gun manufacturers will showcase new products and every hour features three minutes of firearms safety public service announcements. Those looking to place an order will be assisted by customer service reps culled from the veteran and LEO communities.
“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.” Castle said.
