In the USA, other than the "big four" [[note]](the original big three of Creator/{{ABC}}[=/=]Creator/{{CBS}}[=/=]Creator/{{NBC}}, plus latecomer Creator/{{Fox}}; in the early years, [[Creator/DuMont Dumont]] was also counted as a fourth network)[[/note]], the purpose of "network" now mostly serves to identify a niche outlet on cable/satellite; for example, the Food Network and Animal Planet [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin tend to have a lot of cooking shows and wildlife shows, respectively]]. Going back to "the show is the brand" concept, many if not most "home-brew" "networks" and "channels" on the Web (say, on Website/YouTube) are really best described as shows.

* Family Channel (has no connection to Creator/ABCFamily) a family-oriented pay-TV channel that operates as a specialty network. Until September 1, 2015, it was the ''de facto'' Canadian Creator/DisneyChannel. Originally owned by Astral Media (who also owned The Movie Network and half of Teletoon), it was sold to Creator/DHXMedia (a.k.a. that one company that gobbled up [[Creator/CookieJarEntertainment Cookie Jar]] and [[Creator/DiCEntertainment DiC]]) in 2014 after Bell bought out the company. The next year, DHX cut Family's ties with Disney, while Corus Entertainment launched a domestic version of Disney Channel.
