1.  Schedule Information

Airtimes for any of our programs can be found either on the program description page or on our Schedule Page. You can access the Schedule Page by hovering over the Programming tab at the top of any page. Many programs air initially and then rebroadcast once or twice again within a 3-4 day timeframe. Some programs demand encore presentations that can show again every few months.

On our Schedule Page, you can view either our daily or weekly schedule. The weekly schedule can be printed by selecting "Print Schedule" on the right-hand side of the page. Make sure to select your correct time zone when viewing the schedule. The upper right-hand side of the schedule allows you to choose between Pacific, Mountain, Central, or Eastern Time (P, M, C, E). Occasionally, breaking news or time-sensitive programs will result in last minute changes to the schedule. Please refer to our online schedule for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Because our schedule involves current news media and breaking stories, program guides are often available only one week in advance.

      

2.  How do I find more information about a program and when it will be repeated?

Learn more about any of Link TV's programs by visiting the program's description page. Description pages can be found either by visiting our Schedule Page, browsing our Programs List, or by using our Search Engine. If you do not remember the name of the program, keywords can be entered into the search engine.

On the program description page, you will find the program's upcoming broadcast times, a brief description, comments, and often links to distributors, producers, and organizations relevant to the program. The broadcast times on the top of the page can be changed to reflect your time zone by selecting either Pacific, Mountain, Central or Eastern (P, M, C, E). If the program is not scheduled to be broadcast during the current week, please continue to refer to our online schedule regularly. Programs can rebroadcast every few months, so please come back and visit our online schedule and program pages.

      

3.  How can I purchase a Link TV program?

If a program is available for purchase, you will find a link on the program's description page that will redirect you to a licensed distributor. If there is no link available, this program is most likely not being made available for commercial distribution in the US. We will continue to update our website on the further availability of our programs. Our Search Engine will help direct you to the program's description page.

      

4.  Can I watch Link TV online?

Link TV cannot be viewed online in its entirety, but we stream selected programs for which we have streaming rights. Our streams are presented using progressive downloading QuickTime in sized constrained windows, optimized for dialup or broadband connections. To view our streamed programming, browse our RSS Feeds & Podcasts, our Online Series, and Documentaries.

      

5.  Why am I unable to watch a video online from my current location? Does Link TV block certain countries?

Although we try to obtain worldwide online distribution for all our programs, unfortunately, due to rights limitations, we can only stream some programs in certain countries, and for certain windows of times. For example, if we acquire a program that has not yet been released in a particular country, we may be required to block that country from viewing the program online. Since Link TV is a US channel, this problem only extends to the web -- but it is always our goal to reach our global audience via our website, whenever possible. In the event that we cannot, it is not our intention to discriminate or offend, we simply believe that it is better to distribute our content to as widely as possible, even if that means some may be excluded.

      

6.  How do I submit a film or video I've created?

If you are a producer, professional filmmaker, or distributor who would like to submit a film for possible broadcast on Link TV, please submit your film as an "Idea" in our community-powered forum at the top of our Contact us page. These messages are occasionally monitored by our acquisitions team, who may contact you if there is interest in your film or if more information if needed. Please include the title, length, and a brief synopsis of your film, and keep in mind the mission and program quality of Link TV when deciding whether to submit your film. Unfortunately, due to high volume, we can no longer accept unsolicited tapes.

      

7.  I would like to share a program or story idea

Our channel operates on a limited budget with a small staff; therefore we do little in-house production. However, if you have a program idea, you are welcome to submit a brief description as an "Idea" in our community-powered forum at the top of our Contact us page. Someone from our acquisitions team may contact you if there is further interest.
