America One is an over-the-air television network in the United States. The network serves over 170 LPTV, Class A, Full Power, Cable and Satellite affiliate stations. At least 20 of the stations carry America One's complete 168-hour weekly transmission. It is the successor to Channel America.

General entertainment

America One airs a great deal of low-end and international sports broadcasts, reruns and syndicated programming, the syndicated First Business program and a nightly newscast from the Independent News Network, based in Davenport, Iowa.

The network meets federal E/I requirements by airing Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures five days per week, with other shows rotated to fill the remaining half hour of the requirement.

America One Sports

America One holds the U.S. broadcast rights to the Canadian Football League, National Lacrosse League, Hawaii Winter Baseball (ironically, America One does not have a Hawaii affiliate), the USAR Hooters Pro Cup, and (on tape delay) the American Hockey League's all star game. America One syndicates many of these broadcasts to various regional sports networks in the US (usually, those which are not part of the Fox Sports Net family). America One also carries tape-delayed broadcasts of the English Premier League, specifically the Bolton Wanderers and Aston Villa F.C.

The network had previously held rights to the IRB Sevens until Versus acquired those rights prior to the 2007 season. The station also several ECHL games in 2005.

Miscellaneous

America One is the smallest commercial, non-regional network in America to provide news and sports programming. America One had been offering its own live video stream through its Web site, but it has since been shut down indefinitely, though apparently, temporarily. At least two affiliates, WKFK-LP and WBQP-CA, stream limited America One programming live, mostly daytime and weekend programs.

America One is owned by the USFR Media Group, which also owns KTBU channel 55 in Houston, Texas. KTBU does not carry the full America One transmission nor does it use any of its branding; it is known as Houston's 55. America One itself does very little self-promotion of its branding or programs on air, and as such, many America One affiliates appear to be independent stations.
