America's Auction Network (or AANLive) was an American satellite television network specializing in over-the-air auctions.

AANlive is an American licensed and bonded auction network specializing in live television auctions broadcast via cable television, satellite television and online. Fine jewelry, gemstones, coins and currency, real estate, handbags and art are showcased 24-hours a day, 365-days a year in an auction atmosphere. AANlive has taken the auction experience and combined it with the convenience of today’s technology to create the most effortless and enjoyable experience possible. Knowledgeable experts comprise AANlive’s team of hosts, each offering years of expertise and acumen while providing humor, entertainment and fun.

AANlive, previously known as America’s Auction Network, was founded in April 2002 by Jeremiah Hartman. Hartman, previously an owner of jewelry stores and a host/vendor for Jewelry Television, saw a market for auctioning collectibles, and, after closing his last jewelry store, began America’s Auction Network. Initially, the network sold just jewelry, but quickly expanded to antiques, rugs, artwork, Native American Indian collectibles and jewelry, militaria and more. Real estate was added to its repertoire in 2007.

On November 3, 2017, AAN announced they have ceased operation and have permanently gone off the air.

As of October 1, 2018, AAN is broadcasting as "America's Auction Channel" and owned once again by Jeremiah Hartman.
