Notes: Coverage figures have been supplied by the networks, except for those with an asterisk by the coverage percentage. They are estimates of Across Platforms, a research and consulting company. Networks whose primary distribution is through cable like HSN and QVC are not included. **ABC announced last week that it will shut down Live Well Network in January 2015. Two new classic networks from Katz Broadcasting, Escape and Grit, are scheduled to debut this August with at least 45% coverage, which would place them in the top 20.

Looking at this chart Zuus Country is the top MUSIC Digital Network in America. I’m amazed how informative this chart was. I had to confirm this and paid over $1,100 for a report to get the same information. Needless to sat we’re now huge fans of TVNewsCheck. Thank you, Tom, NYC
