"Bestow TV renders award-winning creations in a range of video
media offerings. Bestow’s original offering, Creative Continuity,
is a comic book/pop-culture interview show that opened the
door to many more shows on the channel. Cos-Tunes embraces a
cinematic approach in the presentation of amazing cosplays in
montage form. Additional works include: ConRewind, Mr. Lobo Does,
Troma Tour 5000, Creative Continuity's Bonus Content,
Specials and so much more! Bestow TV records many of its
programming from events, such as Dragon*Con,
Wizard World Conventions,
Reed Pop shows (NYCC, C2E2, Keystone and more),
Baltimore Comic Con, Katsucon, Otakon, Awesome Con,
and Retro Con. Better TV. Best TV. Bestow TV.”
As you all may know Bestow TV's founder, Paul Sanders,
produces all of his content out of his own pocket. The channel is
entering it’s 7th year and to produce content has become a full
time job. This limits the Conventions/Events he can attend to
produce his amazing videos.

Thank you all for your continued support. We can’t wait to roll
out the 2019 season.
It's Thursday, so a new release is coming out tonight. If you didn't know YouTube rolled out premieres. This allows advanced promoting with a functioning URL. When the scheduled time arrives the video will stream live along with a chat feature.
I know that in terms of what I produce is a bit short to utilize this feature for the chat (Something I'll work on in the future with possible live streams). HOWEVER it allows me to have a dedicated release schedule that can be found on YouTube and my website without just dropping at a designated time and hoping fans and casual viewers know when the video drops.
This week (Nov 15) will see Creative Continuity with Pokemon's Veronica Taylor hit the airwaves. She's been a much requested guest to the show. She was delightful and fun to talk to. There's a few outtakes that I've saved for a possible outtake episode.
As you all may know Stan Lee passed on Nov 12. We are saddened by the news as well. Back in Year 1 of Bestow TV, and our for original show Creative Continuity, Stan was on our hit list for an interview. I never thought we would have him on the show so soon - if at all. We were booked to do an interview at Motor City Comic Con early in the morning, but schedule conflicts delayed that until later in the day. We were told by his handler that we were promised an interview and well get one. We just had to wait until the end of the day after all the fan meet and greets.
We patiently waited sharing stories with other fans waiting in line. There were a handful of latecomers to the meet and greet, that were getting turned away. I made a deal with Stan's handler that it will take a little time to set up my camera and mics - so those hand full of people could get in their moments. It was great to watch them interact with their idol and he loved every moment of it.
My stories and interactions were limited to work related or fan related (a few years later I took my daughters to meet him, get autographs and pictures - a strong memory they enjoy and talk about to this day).
I'm glad I got my small moments with Stan and saddened by his passing. I was lucky on both a fan level and a professional level. Thanks Stan!
Last bit. Our next release will be Creative Continuity on turkey day (Nov 22). Mr. Lobo gets to spend some time with Raiders of the Lost Ark Paul Freeman.
What will you like to see in the updates or channel? More live feeds? Turning the camera on myself to give the updates? Show off my collections? That last bit could actually be mini-episodes on it's own.
Thanks for tuning and and supporting Bestow TV over the years. Please subscribe to our channel ( www.youtube.com/bestowtv) as well as like and share out your favorite videos.
See you at the next update.
