The Walk TV (stylized as the WALK TV) is an American Christian specialty television network in the United States. The Walk TV is a sister channel to the Doctor Television Channel (DrTV) as they share broadcasting facilities at 2607 Success Drive in Odessa, Florida, a suburb on the north side of the Tampa area.

The network consists primarily of 263 low-powered television stations across the United States,[1] and is also available on C-band free-to-air satellite services.[2] In addition, The Walk TV is also available to users of the Roku Digital media receiver.[3]

History[edit]

The network was launched as LegacyTV on January 11, 2010. The purpose of this channel is to provide programming that helps people appreciate the Judeo-Christian legacy.[4] The name of the channel was changed to its current name in 2013. The network is currently run by James L. West, who also runs the Doctor TV channel.

Programming[edit]

General programming[edit]

The Walk TV programming lineup consists primarily of religious programming, family movies, off-network syndicated public domain episodes of Bonanza, and some Christian music programming. A few select programs on The Walk TV’s program lineup are also run on sister channel Doctor TV. The Walk TV also features a program produced and hosted by Randall Terry, "Voice of Resistance" in addition to religious news programs from CBN such as The 700 Club and CBN Newswatch.[5]

The channel also provides programming from The Worship Network from 4:00 to 5:30 a.m. Eastern time.[5]

Children’s educational programming[6][edit]

Sports programming[edit]

The Walk TV, along with the JUCE TV and Tri-State Christian Television networks, provide broadcasts of college football games involving the Lynchburg, Virginia-based Liberty University Flames, a member of the Big South Conference. The game broadcasts are produced by the university-operated Liberty Flames Sports Network.[5] Unlike JUCE TV, The Walk TV shows those games live.[7] Game On is a sports-related show that is offered by The Walk TV.[5][8] This is only available to full-time Walk TV affiliates.
