In our ongoing effort to provide “lunge-free TV,” (meaning parents don’t have “lunge” for the remote to turn off offensive content) it is encouraging to receive this validation from the Parents Television Council, one of the most respected organizations in the country.”

“Created to ‘empower and entertain, INSP does both with through a schedule packed with inspirational programming, ranging from old favorites like The Waltons to original programs on the importance of faith,” said Tim Winter, PTC President. “The Parents Television Council is delighted to salute INSP for providing a welcome oasis of uplifting, family-friendly fare, and is proud to award the network the PTC Seal of Approval TM.”
