The NRB Network is an evangelical Christian cable channel run by the National Religious Broadcasters, a national organization representing televangelists and Christian-themed media outlets. While the NRB organization is located in Manassas, Virginia, the channel's corporate headquarters is located in Nashville, Tennessee. Created in 2005, the network can only be seen on a DirecTV cable package. Despite this restriction, the channel boasts an audience of up to 15 million viewers nationwide.
Like the NRB organization itself, the programming on the NRB Network reflects on a belief in conservative fundamentalist Christianity, particularly Protestantism and evangelicalism. Conservative, partially political programming includes the American News Network and The Coral Ridge Hour with D. James Kennedy. Weekend programming includes outdoors-type shows such as Christian Angler and Spiritual Outdoor Adventures. The personalities and programs offered, of course, are all members of the National Religious Broadcasters.
The NRB Network also broadcasts much programming produced by Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network or an organization connected to his television ministry. The channel broadcasts Robertson's 700 Club, as well as CBN's evening newscasts, CBN NewsWatch and Christian World News, as well as the talk show Living the Life and the music video show One Cubed. Also seen is Jay Sekulow, the head of Robertson's American Center for Law and Justice, on the ACLJ This Week radio/TV simulcast. The Show Mission Excursion also airs on the channel, produced by Day Three Media host Nathan McGill takes college students on a cross country journey to help ministries in need of help. The NRB Network also shows programming produced by students at Robertson's Regent University. The NRB Network also borrows programming from the equally conservative FamilyNet.
