We know TV is important to you. It's important to us. That's why the Tampa Bay Times is introducing TV Weekly magazine from NTVB Media Inc. to subscribers.

TV Weekly is a 48-page, glossy-covered magazine featuring expanded local and cable TV listings for the Tampa Bay area, sports listings, a weekly movie guide, streaming show suggestions, Q&As with celebrities, puzzles, games, trivia, horoscopes and soaps.

"TV Weekly has been designed to be the easiest, fastest way for people to find shows of interest and to enjoy TV to its fullest," said Andrew DeAngelis, president of NTVB Media. "There are 1,500 new shows for viewers to choose from, 400 of which are scripted shows. That's the good news. The not-so-good news is there are so many shows and channels that it's hard to know what to watch. Once you do know what to watch, it's often hard to find it. TV Weekly helps provide the guidance for what to watch and the utility to quickly find it."

TV Weekly will replace the paper's TV Times, which appears for the last time today.

Distributed in more than 180 markets in the United States, TV Weekly appears in nearly every major newspaper in Florida.

Look for a free sample of TV Weekly magazine in the May 7 and May 14 Sunday editions of the Times.

Once the free trial is over, TV Weekly will be available in Friday editions starting May 19 for readers who choose to subscribe. Times readers can subscribe to TV Weekly for as little as 75 cents a week, an 80 percent discount off the newsstand rate of $3.99.

To subscribe, contact NTVB Media directly at (855) 545-8468 or online at

"For readers who love television, TV Weekly is a far superior guide than we have been able to provide," said Jennifer Orsi, managing editor of the Times. "It has significantly more content, and even slightly larger type. We think it's a great value for someone who wants complete listings and lots of TV news."
