Black Family Channel is the only black owned and operated cable television network for African American families.

The network's schedule includes a variety of programs including religious programs, sports, music, talk shows and children's programs. Unlike its primary rival Black Entertainment Television, Black Family Channel avoids rap and hip hop-based programming.

The network is now available in almost 15 million homes in the U.S. and continues to grow, although it has not yet approached the size of other black-oriented networks such as BET.

History

The network was founded in 1999 as MBC Network by attorney Willie E. Gary, baseball legend Cecil Fielder, four-time heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield, Marlon Jackson of the Jackson Five, and broadcast television veteran Alvin James.
