    First off, THANK YOU for helping to test, and/or use, our new site during development. We know it is kind of slow right now as we have not publicly announced the site as of yet. So the few members that are here have either found out through a special post or maybe stumbled across it in Google. Either way, thank you for looking to be part of this community as we grow from the ground up.

    With that said, we would like to run a little contest for the 40 or so members we have here that has helped so far. The purpose of this contest is also not just a way to say thanks, but also help get more relative posts on the site so that their is more for Google to look at and thus link to. (Oh, yes, of course we have a motive for the contest!)

    What we are looking for is current PR (Press Releases) and News related to IPTV hardware and content providers to be posted to the site. In other words, if you see a PR release or news on any of the topics we cover, we would love to have you rewrite it in your own words and post it in the relative section. The more news that you post, the more chances you have to win. (An example is the current announcement from Amazon for their Amazon Prime members now getting video streaming.)

    Now we are not looking for you to just CUT and PASTE items you find, as this could be considered a copyright violation and thus get you and us into trouble. However, reading a PR or news article and then writing a paragraph about it is just great. Even linking PR is not a bad idea.

    So, how will this work and what could you win? Good question and we really have no clue. (Kidding) It will be simple (we hope). This will run for 2 week from the date of this email, thus ending on March 12th. We will draw a number between the current post number (286) and the last post number made on March 12th. If that post number is a PR or News post and is over 30 words, the member that made the post wins. (Thus the more you post these type of things, the better your chances.) If the post is found to be just a reply or general chat, or is just too short on detail, we pick another number and check again. We will also be sure the winning post is not just a cut and paste from somewhere else based on searches. Oh, and if someone posts the same news, the person who posted it first gets the entry as long as it fits the above requirements.

    What can you win? We knew you would ask. Your choice... A 1 Year Membership to NetFlix OR a Roku XD unit. We hope that this is enough for some of you to want to help get involved in posting news and thus get the site moving some. (And no, Chris can not win. :lol: He has been doing a great job and this is to help him out also. :lol: )

    So, care to help and maybe win something related to the site? Great...and THANKS!!!

    Looking forward to seeing how this works out as we have more ideas to come!

    Thanks All!
