Music videos, extreme sports, specials, movies, reality, and comedy.


JCTV skews to a young audience, especially within the tween/teen category 10-19.

1 Music Village: Take the best bands in contemporary Christian music, add some edgy new artists who are making waves in the industry, give each one their own stage and venue every week, and you’ve got the makings of a hit music extravaganza called One Music Village.

The Revolutionary Life: A weekly reality show that follows Dustan and Darlene Stanley, both in their early twenties, as they travel the world learning useful—and sometimes difficult—lessons about themselves and the rest of us who share this planet. The Revolutionary Life is not your typical travel show but rather a show about understanding how others live and relationship that are made in the process with plenty adventure and drama added in.

Xtreme Video Zone: The only nationwide Top10 music video countdown show that features Christian Contemporary, R&B & Hip Hop videos that are charting across the country. Taped at the JCTV studios in Southern California the show also premiers many new videos and often has top artists stopping by to check in with the JCTV crew.

Real Girls Real Life: Take a beach house, add a dozen young women from different walks of life and have the cameras catch what unfolds. The difference with Real Girls Real Life is that the show invests into the cast members and offers life coaches to help these young women at a pivotal time in their life to re-enforce their values as a person, not an image to be exploited. The girls and viewers learn how to deal with body image, how or when to pursue a man or even budgeting ones money.
