My Family TV (Formerly Faith TV) is a United States general entertainment television network owned by ValCom, that is jointly operated with Luken Communications, and based in Chattanooga, Tennessee.[1][2]

History

In September 2008, ValCom announced that they would purchase Faith TV and relaunch it as a family television network.[3] On December 15, 2008, ValCom deal to purchase Faith TV closed and they relaunched Faith TV as My Family TV.[4] On October 1, 2009, ValCom completed the purchase of the network after making its final $250,000 payment.[5]

Some of the shows licensed to RTV are now on the newly acquired My Family Television schedule. Many of them were licensed by Peter Rodgers Organization, including The Rifleman, The Bill Cosby Show, Celebrity Bowling, Zorro, Peter Gunn, Daniel Boone, I Spy, The Comedy Shop and The Cisco Kid. A partial list of programs broadcast by Retro Television Network notes this relationship with Peter Rodgers Organization.
