Audience Network is an American satellite television network owned by DirecTV, LLC which is a general entertainment network exclusive to the satellite provider and features a mix of series, specials and feature films.
The network operates as a commercial-free service and broadcasts its programming without editing for content, as DirecTV customers must subscribe to its "Select" basic package in order to receive the channel.
The Audience Network is a unique and exclusive television experience 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.
DirecTV continues its commitment to original content with series including 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 positions itself as the premier destination for smart, innovative and critically acclaimed TV fare, which includes 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, keep sports fans up to date with the latest sports talk. Viewers also enjoy the Guitar Center Sessions series and major events such as the annual DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl.
