Created in 2005, the network can be seen on DirecTV satellite and broadcast affiliates making it available to a national audience of over 40 million viewers. Programming can also be streamed at nrbnetwork.tv, on Roku players, and via a mobile app available for iPhones, iPods, iPads, Android phones, Android tablets, and Windows Phones.

Programming[edit]

Like the NRB organization itself, the programming on the NRB Network reflects on a belief in conservative fundamentalist Christianity, particularly Protestantism and evangelicalism. Many programs broadcast on the NRB Network are produced by members of the National Religious Broadcasters Association.

The NRB Network broadcasts shows representing diverse genres and formats. Weekday morning programming is dedicated to devotional programming including Renewing Your Mind with R.C. Sproul, Precepts for Life with Kay Arthur, Quick Study with Rod Hembree, and others. The channel's daytime schedule is targeted to a female audience with fitness programs and talk shows that include New Life Live with Steve Arteburn, The 700 Club, and Babbie's House which is hosted by award-winning recording artist Babbie Mason. NRB Network's primetime lineup features an emphasis on Christian apologetics and includes well-known apologists such as Ravi Zacharias, William Lane Craig, Eric Metaxas, Ken Ham, John Lennox, and others.

Weekend programming on the channel includes kids shows on Saturday mornings and teen programs in the evening. Sunday programming is dedicated to teaching and preaching shows from pastors representing a variety of evangelical denominations. Among NRB Network's Sunday lineup are Turning Point Ministries with David Jeremiah, Live at Thomas Road with Jonathan Falwell, Living Truth with Charles Price, and Love Worth Finding with the late Adrian Rogers.
