Link TV is an American satellite television liberal network. It is only carried nationally on DirecTV and Dish Network sattelites. It got its start by being launched as a daily, 24-hour non-commercial network in 1999. It receives no money from the satellite providers or coporations, but it relies instead on contributions from its supporters, viewers and foundations. Link TV provides movies, documentaries, specials, shows, and the type of news that can't be found elsewhere. It is as good and liberal as MSNBC.
