A new television network, Pax Net, is slated to begin broadcasting in August 1998. Its owner is Lowell Paxson of Florida, cofounder of Home Shopping Network.
Paxson announced that the network will feature family entertainment, avoiding sex and violence. He has scheduled reruns of CBS's Touched by an Angel, Promised Land, and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.
Pax Net is also developing three original programs. The Mike Levey Show will air nightly using a format like the Tonight Show. LiveLink, another nightly program, will be a call-in show on family and society. Celebrities and Charities will feature famous people promoting charitable organizations.
Paxson said the purpose was to present wholesome broadcasting. “We want to try to keep it family-based.”
Pax Net is planned to be available in 80% of the U.S. market.
