The Australian Christian Channel (ACC) is a Christian channel featured on subscription-based television in Australia. The Australian Christian Channel is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on Foxtel, Austar, Optus, TransACT, and Neighbourhood Cable. [2] [3] The channel reaches a potential audience of approximately 2.2 million homes (6.4 million people). [4] It can also be viewed for free online via their website. [5] The channel was previously also available on free-to-air digital television in Sydney on the Digital Forty Four service. [6]

The Australian Christian Channel has a strategic partnership with Shine TV in New Zealand, The U- Channel in Indonesia and UCB in the UK by working together to establish a broadcast service center in Australia that provides programming for those channels.

The Australian Christian Channel is a non-profit organization.[2] Any proceeds in addition to expenses go to fostering new programs, conducting support services or community welfare programs.

The Australian Christian Channel does not sell air time - programs are broadcast at no cost. The provision of finance is not a consideration in determining which programs will go to air on the channel. Programs are selected on merit and their potential placement within the schedule.

The Australian Christian Channel sources programming from all over the world and Australia, with a goal to continue to increase the amount of great quality local Aussie content on air. They are currently looking for programs that are relevant to their Australian audience.

It was announced on 29 January 2010 that the free-to-air digital television service Digital Forty Four would end its transmission on 30 April 2010 including the channels & services Australian Christian Channel, National Indigenous Television, Expo, Teachers TV, text news from the ABC, live audio feeds from State and Federal Parliaments, and a TV guide as datacasted in the Sydney Area. The Australian government agency, the Australian Communications and Media Authority decided not to renew the license to broadcast beyond the end of April. [7]
