Queensland Community Television

Home > Brisbane > Free
Published November 2nd 2009
I know what you’re thinking. 'Irk, community television, how lame.' But come on, aren’t Kochie’s jokes getting a little tiresome, and Australian Idol just isn’t cutting it anymore? Consider Queensland Community Television (QCTV) the remedy to your television woes.

Launched in 1994, QCTV (formerly known as Briz 31) is a television station renowned for giving the independent, lower budget productions some much-needed airtime. Because of this it harbours the more ‘quirky’ and interesting kinds of contemporary television; the kind of stuff commercial channels wouldn’t dare touch out of fear of bad ratings. Let’s face it: commercial channels just don’t take chances. QCTV does.

In a nutshell: QCTV feels like a breath of fresh air. It features a surprisingly diverse range of programs, ranging from paranormal investigators to shows about bowling. It really does have something for everyone. Sure, the shows might not boast the same cutting-edge special effects as 'Lost', but it’s still home to some very good television.

So next time you grudgingly tune in to 'Funniest Home Videos' after some unsuccessful channel surfing, why not take a chance and veg out to an episode of 'Ghost Cop' instead? Trust me, it’s far more entertaining than watching little kids punch their fathers in the gonads.

Check out this week’s program here, or just tune in anytime for your daily dose of the bizarre and original. You won’t regret it.
