The QPTV Lottery is a first-come, first-served biennial (every other year) drawing to determine the series schedule on QPTV’s channels. An online form is completed by producers during an application reception period. After that time, applicants are processed, and series timeslots are randomly drawn for each applicant. Only one series is allowed per applicant.
A Series at QPTV is a show that is ongoing every week or every month. These shows can be either half-hour or an hour long (maximum 28:30 for half-hour, and 58:30 for an hour.) Series timeslots are selected through QPTV’s biennial Lottery.
There are two types of Series available:
Weekly Series are scheduled for cablecast twice a week. Two timeslots are generally provided. One of the slots is a “repeat” slot.
Monthly Series are scheduled for cablecast twice a month. Two timeslots are generally provided. One of the slots is a “repeat” slot. During the Lottery application process, a producer can suggest what week of the month the show should be cablecast.
QPTV maintains a Series Waiting List in between our biennial Lottery drawings. Filling out a Waiting List application gives you the opportunity to place your show into the schedule during the current programming cycle. Placement on the Waiting List does not guarantee a timeslot will be given.
