The AmericanLife TV Network, formerly the GoodLife TV Network and The Nostalgia Channel, is an American cable television network. It describes itself as the only independent network devoted to the baby boomer generation. It is similar to TV Land because it airs classic television programs.
According to a June, 2007 story in Variety, the network has been a consistent money-loser, though the Unification Church's tax-exempt status makes it easier for the parent organization to absorb the losses. Vice-president of marketing Darlene Chapman-Holmes blamed AmericanLife TV's status as "a niche, standalone network that doesn't have any leverage" for its failure to land more lucrative carriage deals with cable and satellite system operators. The network has made a video on demand (VOD) deal with TVN Entertainment Corporation to offer up to twenty hours of programming per month on a VOD basis to more than 100 cable affiliates.
AmericanLife TV recently expanded its programming library considerably by acquiring rights to a number of classic television series from Twentieth Television, including Hill Street Blues, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Newhart and Batman. The network also made a deal with CBS Television Distribution for rights to Mission: Impossible. Beginning in June, 2007, AmericanLife TV gradually revamped its primetime schedule to introduce these programs and others.
In 2007, AmericanLife TV broadcast George Clooney's documentary, A Journey to Darfur. In 2008, AmericanLife TV released the film on DVD and announced that proceeds from its sale would be donated to the International Rescue Committee (IRC) for their humanitarian efforts in Darfur.
