The network operated as a commercial-free service and broadcast its programming without editing for content, as DirecTV customers had to subscribe to its "Select" basic package in order to receive the channel.

ABOUT

The Audience Network was a channel available only to DirecTV subscribers. The channel first made its mark in 2008 (as The 101 Network) by partnering with NBC to produce and air three additional seasons of the Emmy Award-winning series Friday Night Lights and in 2010 it became the exclusive home of Damages, starring Glenn Close.

Other original series included Rogue, an exclusive suspense-drama starring award-winning actress Thandie Newton; and Full Circle, the television debut of acclaimed writer Neil LaBute, starring Kate Walsh, Julian McMahon, Minka Kelly and David Boreanaz.

The network positioned itself as the premier destination for smart, innovative and critically acclaimed TV fare, which included bespoke series such as Hit & Miss (United Kingdom), Rake (Australia), Call Me Fitz and Less Than Kind (Canada).

The Dan Patrick Show, and its companion series The Box Score, kept sports fans up to date with the latest sports talk. There were also Guitar Center Sessions series and major events such as the annual DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl.

The channel was discontinued on 20 May, 2020.
