Jewish Life Television (JLTV) is a 24-hour, full-time TV network delivering entertaining Jewish–themed programming. The network was founded in 2007 by Phil Blazer, a longtime journalist and producer of programming for the Jewish community. In the United States, JLTV is available in over 40 million households through DirecTV, Spectrum Cable, Comcast, Google Fiber, Atlantic Broadband, Bright House, and independent cable systems.[1][2]

JLTV's programming includes news, sports, lifestyle and entertainment programming such as films, documentaries, music, reviews, interviews and special events, such as programming from the Maccabiah Games.[3] The network also carries a collection of classic general-interest television series with Jewish hosts, including episodes of The Jack Benny Program, That Show with Joan Rivers, Candid Camera, The Danny Kaye Show, The Soupy Sales Show and The Goldbergs.

The September 2017 launch of JLNow (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKdvo1Qcet8VAn9XO7ff-CQ) on YouTube is JLTV's first step towards building its dynamic digital platform. The platform will feature some of the best of library programming as well as new content developed for the digital audience.

JLTV's broadcast facilities are in Los Angeles.

Canadian distribution[edit]

In 2011, JLTV was officially added to the CRTC's approved list of foreign services, allowing the channel to expand into Canada. Ethnic Channels Group, who sponsored the application to get JLTV on the approved list, is the official Canadian distributor of the channel.[4] In July, 2014, JLTV officially launched in Canada on Bell Fibe TV.
