Network One was a small "independent" network, consisting of mostly low-powered television stations, scattered across the Continental United States, similar to Urban America Television, America One, or the better-known Ion (formerly PAX). The network was started in the mid-1990s, around the same time as Channel America and the American Independent Network, but shut down in 1998.[1]

"Alternative" programming[edit]

Focusing on "alternative" programming,[2] the network consisted of various B-Grade movies, beauty pageants, anime, and episodes of the series Night Flight and Bohemia Afterdark[3] (a Portland, Oregon based Music Video show). Classic episodes of the 1950s "hard-boiled" crime drama Lock-Up with Macdonald Carey were featured as well. Commercials were filled with advertisements for 1-900 chat lines with a more mature focus.

List of affiliates[edit]

Most affiliates have either gone independent, switched affiliations to another television network, or have simply gone off the air. Some, however, have simply turned into rebroadcasters for other stations.
