TUFF TV reaches approximately 38 million U.S. TV households, and is distributed through local broadcast affiliates in markets across the country. TUFF TV is ranked No. 17 among the top 25 digital broadcast television networks in the U.S.

The network's programming comprises seven genres: sports, lifestyle, drama, reality, talk, specials and movies. It features NCAA Division II football and basketball, mixed martial arts, wrestling, outdoors, adventure, music, motorsports, and more

“Most television networks are owned by huge media conglomerates that do not permit ownership of specific networks,” commented Lou Seals, CEO of TUFF TV. “Many of these same conglomerates have spun off media holdings, often separating television network operations from other less profitable divisions..Kickstarter Marketing

“We are both proud and excited to be the first to offer ownership to the general public in a pure-play national television network using a crowdfunding platform,” Seals added.
