Starting review now.Vinay84 (talk) 10:11, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Since the channel does not exist any longer, the End of network section can be merged to the History section.

Please give additional information on : Ely Landau, Inc., Unger and Harold Goldman

The paragraph starting "The NTA Film network launched ... " is redundant since there is a list of affiliates.

Hi Vinay,
Thanks for the review. Per your observations, I have merged the End of network section into the History section. I've also explained who Harold Goldman was, and what Ely Landau, Inc., was. I've removed the redundant station affiliation section, moving the three references in that section into a Further reading section, as I'd hate to lose the references altogether. What's next?

It is good to see a fast response.

There are a lot of Red links especially in the Programs section.Please check all missing links for misspelling and remove links for topics you believe cannot/ will not have a good article in the future. Vinay84 (talk) 03:17, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

I actually had about 50 red links when I started this article. I've been blueifying them as I go along. I created Official Detective tonight, so there are only ten left. I could remove the red links now, but I think all the remaining names of series and people could definitely have articles... and I plan to create them myself, as I did with most of the NTA Film Network's programs. Acceptable? Firsfron of Ronchester 05:54, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

The Infobox needs to be expanded like those on the page of the competitors CBS, NBC, or ABC. Also, it would be good if instead of an ad for a program, some artist manges to put up the actual Logo of the company in the infobox (with copyright tags etc.) with the current pic somewhere below.

Regarding the links , I find gradual article creation acceptable with respect to the program links but please check Charles C. Barry and Patty Ann Gerrity red links .

Vinay84 (talk) 02:49, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I've removed the redlinks to Charles C. Barry and Patty Ann Gerrity, per your request. I'll restore them only after I've created articles for them (for surely the president of a television network and the star of a TV show on said network are notable). Thanks.
I've expanded the infobox as far as it can go; some of the fields in CBS (such as website) weren't appropriate here.
I've only ever seen the NTA Film Network's 'ribbon' logo (as shown in this article) twice (both in print ads for programs), and one other logo (also in a print ad) once. I could separate the ribbon logo shown in the infobox, if you feel that's appropriate, or scan in the one from Dick Golembiewski's book, Milwaukee Television History: The Analog Years. Which would you prefer? Firsfron of Ronchester 14:19, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

No new real issues that I could find. I will give one or two days for sorting of small improvements instead of an "on hold" tag

If it is confirmed that there is no misspelling in the addresses , redlinks to Charles C. Barry and Patty Ann Gerrity are OK.
Regarding the Logo, I am more concerned about not violating copyright. So follow the legal method in US.

Vinay84 (talk) 11:18, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

I've added one of two logos, with proper sourcing and Fair Use Rationale; see File:NTA_Film_Network_logo.jpg#Summary and File:NTA_Film_Network_logo.jpg#Licensing:. Thanks for your comments. Firsfron of Ronchester 00:16, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

This article in my opinion , now has passed all the good article criteria, I am approving GA Class to it. Vinay84 (talk) 03:21, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
