America One is an American over-the-air television network established in 2001.[not verified in body] The network serves over 170 LPTV, Class A, Full Power, Cable and Satellite affiliate stations. At least twenty of the stations carry America One's complete 168-hour weekly transmission.

In addition to its broadcasts to the low powered televisions stations which in turn appear on cable television outlets it streams content on the Internet. According to its press release in 2013 it broadcast "5500 live and exclusive events, over 100 U.S. Colleges, 70 professional sports teams and hundreds of top professional leagues from Asia and Europe."[1] It is owned and operated by privately owned One Media Corp., based in Dallas, Texas which also operates ONE World Sports and ONE CONNXT.[2]

General entertainment

America One airs primarily international sports programming in prime time, reruns (including some public domain series) and syndicated programming during the day.

The network meets the federal E/I requirements by airing Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures five days per week, with other shows (i.e., Real Life 101, What's Up! Que Pasa, and Planet X[3]) rotated to fill the remaining half hour of the requirement, allowing their affiliates to meet the guidelines without additional programming purchases.

America One holds the U.S. broadcast rights to the Ontario Hockey League, Australian Football League, the USAR Hooters Pro Cup, certain ECHL games, playoffs in the Indoor Football League, and (on tape delay) the American Hockey League's all star game. America One syndicates many of these broadcasts to various regional sports networks in the US (usually, those not part of the Fox Sports Net family). America One also carries tape-delayed broadcasts of the English Premier League, specifically Bolton Wanderers and Everton. America One also now shows Midwest-based Victory Fighting M.M.A. Usually, these events are on tape delay.

America One has broadcast rights to several rugby league organizations. From 2010 the predominantly Britain-based Super League matches were shown live (rights to that league have since transitioned to Fox Sports 2 (then called Fuel TV) in 2013) in addition to Australasia's National Rugby League games.[4][5] They will also be showing the American National Rugby League Grand final.

Historically, America One had a longstanding partnership with the Canadian Football League that lasted through much of the 2000s; this ended prior to the 2010 season, with NFL Network taking over U.S. broadcast rights, which now belong to the NBC Sports Network.

In 2012, America One became the first American network to broadcast a Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) game (Hiroshima Toyo Carp home game) on tape delay.[citation needed]
