Rev’n is an American vehicle-oriented digital broadcast television network owned by Luken Communications, LLC.

History[edit]

As early as October 2012, Luken Communications, LLC was planning a car focused channel then called My Car TV.[1] The concept was later retooled and renamed prior to launch, with the network focusing on all automotive vehicles, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and more.

Rev'n was announced by Luken Communications on November 3, 2014[2][3] and launched on December 1, 2014 with 26 affiliates in 24 markets[4] reaching 29 million households.[5]

Unusually for a specialty network, both of Rev'n's federally mandated educational and informational programs are more or less exclusive to the channel, and with both carrying an automotive theme, Rev'n does not need to break from its format to air them. Each show airs multiple episodes during the week to fill the three-hour minimum requirements.

Affiliates[edit]

In addition to terrestrial affiliates, Rev'n is also available through a free Internet stream on the station's Web site, as well as through subscriptions to the Klowd TV, NKTelco, and FilmOn streaming services.
