Tri-State Christian Television, Inc., doing business as TCT Network and TCT Ministries, is a religious television network in the United States. The network was founded in May 1977 by spouses Garth and Tina Coonce.
TCT Network includes traditional televangelism, talk shows, children-oriented programming such as TCT Kids (used to meet E/I mandates), Southern gospel music, and feature films with Christian themes. TCT has an international service, TCT World, which broadcasts in over 170 countries.
From the mid-1980s to 2007, TCT was an affiliate of the Trinity Broadcasting Network. The network currently maintains a relationship with the Christian Broadcasting Network, airing that network's flagship program The 700 Club twice daily as well as CBN's nightly newscast.
From 2011 to 2013, TCT operated a Spanish-language sub-channel which was available both online and over the air on TCT stations called La Fuente. This subchannel was ultimately discontinued, but reactivated in August 2014 for a simulcast of the Aramaic Broadcast Network (ABN). It was discontinued no later than 2017.
In June 2018, TCT ended local operations at all of its owned-and-operated stations, consolidating all of its stations into a single national feed. The change came after the Federal Communications Commission lifted its Main Studio Rule, which had required broadcast stations to have a local studio.
