OutLookTV started out as Prism, after the first Gay Games in Vancouver in 1990. OutLookTV has since been resurrected after going into retirement approximately 10 years ago.
In 2011, the GBLTTQQII community approached SHAW TV to cover the OutGames, which took place in Vancouver. The week long coverage was so successful it was decided then that OutLookTV would make a come back, relaunching the first show on Wednesday November 16th at 10:30pm 2011.
OutLookTV now airs on SHAW TV and OUTtv as a Queer Magazine Show focusing on GLBTTQQII items.
