The Church Channel (TCC) is a Christian television network owned by Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). It broadcasts church service programs 24 hours per day, 7 days a week from several of America’s leading churches, representing several Christian denominations, as well as independent and non-denominational churches. It broadcasts out of Nashville, Tennessee.
The network's programming consists of Christian worship services, 90% of which must be of an instructional, evangelistic or ministerial nature.
