The Country Network

The Country Network is a broadcast television network based out of Deerfield Beach, Florida. It plays videos of the most popular country music artists from the 1980s through to today’s top artists. Using the slogan “It’s Your Country,” this network streams country music videos not only through broadcast, satellite and cable television but also through Internet-cable devices including iPad, iPhone, Droid and PS3.

The History of The Country Network

Originally called the Artists & Fans Network, The Country Network debuted January 7, 2009. The first video to air was Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long.” By August, the fledgling network was experiencing severe financial issues, and its owner, Southern Venture Capital Group, decided to sell. Warren Hansen, one of the original founders, purchased all the assets and changed the name to American Music Video Network. He also changed the look and feel of the station to take it in a new direction. After deciding on a definitive programming schedule, Hansen again changed the name of the station in February 2010 to The Country Network. One year after Hansen took over the network, Sinclair Broadcast Group signed a deal to carry the network on its digital subchannels in the majority of its media markets.

The Country Network Shows

The Country Network advertises that it streams country music videos 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. However, the Federal Communications Commission requires all television stations in the United States to provide educational and informative programs at least three hours per week. Every Saturday morning the programming includes three hours Gina D’s Kids Club, which satisfies this educational and informative requirement.

Where to Watch The Country Network

Sinclair Broadcast Group launched the station in its digital media markets, making it available to 41 television stations that service over 34 million household across the United States. It also provides 24/7 live simulcast through the Internet and mobile devices. With limited production and programming facilities in Nashville and New York City, The Country Network is available in 26 states on 41 network stations and 58 cable stations.
