IC Places Forms Studio Partnership With Empire Media Center

LOS ANGELES, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IC Places, Inc. (OTCQB: PNCH) announced today that it has formed a partnership with Empire Media Center to become the new home of the Imagine TV Network.  Imagine TV is a new TV network which will Inspire, Motivate and Entertain its audience, built around the World's most fascinating Motivators, Producers, Educators and Authors. 

Under the agreement, Imagine TV will brand Empire Media Center as the home of the Imagine TV Network.  Imagine TV shows filmed at Empire will be titled "Brought to you from Empire Media Center in Glendale California." 

As promotional consideration, Imagine TV will be given full use of the facilities to film and produce its in-house productions.

Empire Media Center, located at 3915 San Fernando Rd.  Glendale, California features one of LA's largest permanent green screens which has been used in the production of TV shows, music videos, commercials, and photo shoots.  The studios offer full time news sets, fully furnished interview sets, office spaces and large event facilities. 

IC Places, Inc. has also signed an agreement with Empire Media Center to become the Company's new corporate headquarters.

IC Places Inc., which manages all Imagine TV assets, is currently building launch sponsors relationships for the network as well as bringing on board some of the top Motivators, Producers, Educators and Authors in the wide arena of Self-Improvement.

The Reason Behind the Creation of Imagine TV

In the $9.84 Billion Self-Improvement Market, technology is driving the way people around the world produce, find, obtain and use self-improvement content. More content than ever is flooding the market place, as technology has made it possible for anyone to become an author, a coach, a producer or an innovator.  A great deal of extraordinary content is becoming lost in the noise as content offerings expand and crowd the marketplace. 

The company felt there needed to be a singular, free of charge, multi-media accessible point where consumers can experience the best messages on the planet.  A place where people who are true fans of and believers in the power of self-improvement content dig in and find the best of the best delivered to the consumer free of charge no matter where they are.  

Imagine TV lets people see and hear speakers, authors, trainers and motivators. It lets them decide for themselves if they like what they are seeing and if they want more.  Viewers get to experience this for free in their homes or on their smart phones, tablets or computers.  If, after experiencing the shows on Imagine TV, they like what they see and want more, Imagine TV gives them the ability to fulfill that desire right away via the website. At www.MyImagineTV.com they can immediately purchase and download audio, videos and ebooks by the author or speaker they were just watching on Imagine TV.  Imagine TV is giving the buyers of this $9.84 billion dollar market place the best access to make the best decision about whether or not they want more from these extraordinary experts.

"No matter where you are, who you are or what starting platform you begin life from, you have a God given right to reach your dreams. Imagine TV, in partnership with the world's most fascinating Motivators, Educators and Authors, will deliver the inspiration, education and motivation to help you find your path to success."

About the Self-Help Industry

In a 2013 press release titled "$10.4 Billion Self-Improvement Market Survives Scandals & Recession - More Content & Services Being Delivered Online, Finds Marketdata Enterprises,"  Marketdata Enterprises, Inc., a leading independent market research publisher since 1979, released the 9th edition of one of its best-selling studies, a 382-page report entitled: The U.S. Market For Self-Improvement Products & Services.

In the study it states:  "Technology is driving the way Americans produce, find, obtain and use self-improvement content."

The study quotes:

MARKET VALUE: The total U.S. self-improvement market was worth $9.84 billion last year, versus $10.82 billion in 2007 — a 9.1% 4-year decline. We forecast better 6.1% average yearly gains from 2012 to 2016. The recession took a toll on most market segments, including live seminars, books, infomercials, personal coaching, commercial diet programs and stress management. However, growth was evident in audiobooks, medical diet programs and holistic institutes/training companies.

AUDIOBOOKS MARKET: This is now a $2.97 billion segment. After dipping 10% in 2009, sales have rebounded strongly, 10% in 2010 and 13% in 2011. The APA says that 24+ million Americans now listen to audiobooks. Of this total, self-improvement titles account for $445 million—or about 17% of all audio book sales. 24% of Americans now listen to audiobooks.

This is the industry Imagine TV lives in.  There is no other Self-Help-based TV network on cable or broadcast today.  Imagine TV is not a religious network but will feature content that Inspires, Motivates and Entertains.
