Great American Family Celebrates as Fastest-Growing Cable Network
It’s great news for Great American Family.
The American cable television network, which positions itself as a faith-based alternative to the Hallmark Channel, closed out the Fourth Quarter 2022 as the fastest-growing network in all of cable television.
That’s according to a release from the network.
The release also says that, in only its second year, GAF has emerged as the leader in original Christmas movies.
The network says viewership growth was driven by the network’s Great American Christmas franchise which featured 18 original Christmas movies and fan-favorite stars including Candace Cameron Bure, Danica McKellar, Gladys Knight, Jen Lilley and more.
Bure took to Instagram, thanking viewers “for finding us and watching Great American Family Channel.”
After a long relationship with Hallmark, Bure made the move over to GAF in April, 2022 in the role as chief content officer; a job that would see her develop, produce, and star in original romantic comedies and holiday content for GAF and other networks run by Great American Media, its parent company.
The release states that the expanded slate of 18 films marked a 50% increase in the network’s holiday movie offering in year two and further established Great American Family as a destination for original Christmas movies.
In addition to the fast-growing Great American Christmas franchise, the network features year-round seasonal programming events, including Autumn Harvest and Great American Winter, which feature original movies celebrating faith, family and country.
