But, MVPD subscribers will see gradual flips from RLTV programming to Newsy, with the transition set to begin "over the next few months.
RLTV is widely distributed on Comcast, AT&T U-Verse, Suddenlink, Spectrum and Verizon FiOS, but is not carried on Cox systems in such retirement-rich areas as the Phoenix DMA.
Founded by John Erickson, RLTV programming includesWho's Cooking with Florence Henderson,Taking Care with Joan Lunden,and vintage car programStyle in Steel.
Even with a bad economy, research shows the 50+ set is not economizing on beauty products or cable TV, according to Kimberly Simmons, media relations manager for RLTV, the only network dedicated to those 50 and older.
Owners and administrators who subscribe to the major cable carriers such as Time Warner, Cox, and Verizon can contact their provider directly to request RLTV.
We are thrilled to debut our show on RLTV, a network that truly understands how to thoughtfully reach our core audience of baby boomers and seniors.
Our programming is dedicated to providing information, entertainment and news that enhance the lifestyles of Americans over the age of 50," says Elliott Jacobson, Senior Vice President of programming and production for RLTV.
