List of United States over-the-air television networks

In the United States, for most of the history of broadcasting, there were only three or four major commercial national terrestrial networks. From 1946 to 1956, these were ABC, CBS, NBC and DuMont (though the Paramount Television Network had some limited success during these years). From 1956 to 1986, the "Big Three" national commercial networks were ABC, CBS, and NBC (with a few limited attempts to challenge them, such as National Telefilm Associates [and its NTA Film Network] and the Overmyer Network). From 1954 to 1970, National Educational Television was the national clearinghouse for public TV programming; the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) succeeded it in 1970.

Today, more than fifty national free-to-air networks exist. Other than the non-commercial educational (NCE) PBS, which is composed of member stations, the largest terrestrial television networks are the traditional Big Three television networks (ABC, CBS and NBC). Many other large networks exist, however, notably Fox and The CW which air original programming for two hours each night instead of three like the original "Big Three" do, as well as syndication services like MyNetworkTV and Ion Television which feature reruns of recent popular shows with little to no original programming. Fox has just about the same household reach percentage as the Big Three, and is therefore often considered a peer to ABC, NBC, and CBS since it has also achieved equal or better ratings since the late 1990s. Most media outlets now include Fox in what they refer to as the "Big Four" TV networks.

The transition to digital broadcasting in 2009 has allowed for television stations to offer additional programming options through digital subchannels, one or more supplementary programming streams to the station's primary channel that are achieved through multiplexing of a station's signal. A number of new commercial networks airing specialty programming such as movies, reruns of classic series and lifestyle programs have been created from companies like Weigel Broadcasting, Luken Communications and even owners of the major networks such as Fox Corporation (through the Fox Entertainment subsidiary), National Amusements (through the CBS Corporation subsidiary), The Walt Disney Company (through the Walt Disney Television subsidiary) and Comcast (through the NBCUniversal subsidiary). Through the use of multicasting, there have also been a number of new Spanish-language and non-commercial public TV networks that have launched.

Free-to-air networks in the U.S. can be divided into four categories:

Commercial networks – which air English-language programming to a general audience (for example, CBS);

Spanish-language networks – fully programmed networks which air Spanish-language programming to a primarily Latin American audience (for example, Telemundo and Univision);

Educational and other non-commercial broadcast networks – which air English- and some foreign-language television programming, intended to be educational in nature or otherwise of a sort not found on commercial television (for example, PBS);

Religious broadcast networks – which air religious study and other faith-based programs, and in some cases, family-oriented secular programs (for example, Daystar).Each network sends its signal to many local affiliate television stations across the country. These local stations then air the "network feed," with programs broadcast by each network being viewed by up to tens of millions of households across the country. In the case of the largest networks, the signal is sent to over 200 stations. In the case of the smallest networks, the signal may be sent to just a dozen or fewer stations.

As of the 2016–17 television season, there are an estimated 118.4 million households in the U.S. with at least one TV set.

Motorz TV

Motorz (pronounced Motors) is an American television series seen nationwide on Youtoo America, Rev'n, Untamed Sports TV, Biz Television, The Auto Channel, Wild TV, and globally on Amazon Video, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, YouTube and iTunes. The Automotive Improvement® series is hosted by Chris Duke.

Each episode features step-by-step DIY installation help of automotive products, vehicle maintenance tips, new products, and a letters segment. The program premiered on the Internet in 2008 and on Television in 2010. Motorz was created by Chris Duke and is produced by Duke Networks.

Motorz began life as "Truckblog TV", named after the Truckblog.com website which Chris Duke started in 2004. In September 2008 the name of the series was changed to Motorz to attract a larger audience and brand the series independently, separate from Truckblog.

During its ten year lifespan, Motorz has helped automotive enthusiasts learn more about how to maintain their vehicles and install aftermarket products such as exhaust kits, air intake kits, suspension kits, body kits, steps, tonneau covers, mobile electronics, performance accessories, and more on a varying range of cars and pickup trucks.

Each episode starts with the tools required for the installation, an overview of the products being installed, followed by the step-by-step installation procedure. At the end of every episode the product's benefits are shown before the credits roll with humorous out-takes.

Actress Olivia Korte joined the cast as the "Motorz Girl" for season five, and was replaced by actress Brigitte Patton beginning with season six. In this co-starring role, she helps describe the tools needed for the job, along with host Chris Duke. Halfway through season six, the role of the Motorz Girl was phased out. Alan Taylor contributed to the show , adding vehicle test drive and celebrity interview segments from 2014-2018.
