Dear Loyal JBTV Fans,

We SCREWED up. Three weeks ago we launched a Go-Fund-Me that we thought was great, that we had the whole thing figured out. We didn’t.

We’ve lowered our prices, added new rewards, and detailed lists of all the things you can get! Head on back to check them out.

JBTV Music Television is a By the People for the People operation, all of our effort goes into presenting fantastic programming to you, our audience, and we give it our all and at no cost to the fans. However it is important to note that we are not a regular TV show. We have limited to no ads or commercials in our programs and 95% of our staff is here on a volunteer basis.

So give us another chance and head back to jbtvmusic.com/upgrade to help us keep producing great content. Any donation will be appreciated.

Here's a link to some of the posters that are available once we have the list of people selecting rewards with poster options we can distribute posters on a first come first serve basis:
