Cozi TV (often styled COZI TV[3]) is an American digital multicast television network that is owned by the NBC Owned Television Stations division of NBCUniversal. The network airs a mix of classic television series from the 1950s through the 1980s, movies, and first-run lifestyle programming.[2][4][5]

The network originated as a local news and lifestyle programming format that was launched between 2009 and 2011 and was seen on digital subchannels operated by nine owned-and-operated television stations of the NBC television network in the United States under the brand NBC Nonstop.[2] The sitcoms and drama series now appearing on Cozi are primarily from the NBCUniversal Television Distribution program library, along with original programs from other distributors.

Local/regional format as NBC Nonstop

NBC Nonstop logo.

After NBCUniversal shut down NBC Weather Plus in December 2008, the network's flagship station WNBC in New York City replaced the network on digital subchannel 4.2 on March 9, 2009, with "NBC New York Nonstop", a channel that featured a mix of locally produced news and lifestyle programming.[6]

NBC Local Media created the new position of executive vice president of Nonstop Network and appointed former WNBC general manager Tom O'Brien in June 2010.[7] In October, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. sister stations WCAU and WRC-TV launched their own versions of the channel. Chicago's WMAQ-TV launched its own local version in November 2010. NBC's three owned-and-operated stations in California (KNBC in Los Angeles, KNTV in San Jose-San Francisco and KNSD in San Diego) collaborated to launch the only regional Nonstop channel in January 2011 with NBC California Nonstop; Nonstop channels were also launched by KXAS-TV in Dallas-Fort Worth and WTVJ in Miami that same month. Each stations' Nonstop subchannel carried eight hours of locally produced programming (usually in the form of additional local newscasts exclusive to the subchannel that were produced by the news departments of each station, and some lifestyle or talk-oriented programs), along with core programming from affiliated production company LXTV (such as Talk Stoop, First Look and Open House).[8]

Relaunch as Cozi TV

On November 3, 2011, NBC Owned Television Stations announced that its seven local Nonstop subchannels would become a single national network under the proposed name NBC Nonstop Network (also to have been called NBC Nonstop or Nonstop Network), the format of the national network was originally planned to feature a format similar to the local Nonstop channels, which would have placed the network in direct competition with the Live Well Network.[2][9] An NBC executive indicated that the independently-formatted Nonstop channels were performing well, but needed separate programming. NBC stated that the network would carry reruns of classic television series during daytime hours and lifestyle programming at night, and that local stations would be able to preempt the national Nonstop Network programming to carry their own local programming. By July 2012, it was announced that NBC was considering renaming the national network, with "Bob TV" among the names under consideration.[10]

On October 17, 2012, Time Out Chicago reported that NBCUniversal would launch a new classic television network (similar to Me-TV) called Cozi TV; this turned out to actually be the new name of the retooled version of NBC Nonstop.[4][11][12] NBC soft launched Cozi TV on its owned-and-operated stations as well as some charter affiliates on December 20, 2012; the network's official launch was on January 1, 2013.[13][14][15]


NBCUniversal currently broadcasts Cozi TV in most markets served by a station owned by the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations group, either on subchannels of NBC or Telemundo stations. The network will also seek carriage on the digital subchannels of other television stations, primarily NBC-affiliated stations.[4][5] As of June 2, 2014 Cozi TV is available "part time" nationwide on Dish (82) and At&t Uverse (578) through a deal with LeSEA Broadcasting's "FETV" network, a Christian- and family-oriented programming service.
