Anchored by Sony Pictures Entertainment’s vast library, getTV is a national TV network featuring your favorite action, crime, comedy and western TV series and movies from all eras.
Due to its ownership by Sony Pictures Entertainment, getTV's program schedule relies in part on a portion of the extensive library of films and television series currently owned by network sister companies Sony Pictures Television and Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group, which comprises more than 3,500 films and 2,000 television series. Sony Pictures already maintains programming distribution agreements with Antenna TV (owned by Tribune Broadcasting) and Movies! (a joint venture between Weigel Broadcasting and Fox Television Stations), which allows those networks to carry films from the Sony library, in addition to a distribution deal with Antenna TV to broadcast television series to which Sony's television unit holds rights (mainly those produced by the various predecessors that existed prior to the company's 2002 consolidation of Columbia TriStar Television, Columbia Pictures Television and TriStar Television).
- "The Most Wonderful Month of the Year" (2015–present) This event began in 2015 with only two days. In 2016, the event gained a name and expanded to 29 days starting on November 27 with Christmas programming in prime time and a marathon the last two days. The event also featured the network's first original program, A Nashville Christmas in 2017. This music variety special lasted 60 minutes featuring country stars, Wynonna, Emmylou Harris, Lorrie Morgan, Pam Tillis, Ashley Cleveland and Dailey & Vincent, and aired on December 7, 2017.
Classic television series:
In the fall of 2015, getTV began to break from its all-movie format (outside required children's programming content) to incorporate classic television series to its schedule, including series that have either not been syndicated in the past or have merely not been seen on broadcast television in decades.
Then on September 28, 2015, getTV announced that it had reached respective agreements with World Nation Live Entertainment and Reelin' In the Years Productions to acquire the rights to The Judy Garland Show (which had not aired on television since it originally aired on CBS from 1963 to 1964) and a selection of about 50 episodes of The Merv Griffin Show, which would serve as the cornerstones of a new Monday night block of variety and talk programming (running from 8:00 to 11:00 pm. Eastern Time, with same-night replay after the initial airing). The block, which debuted on October 12, also features musical variety specials and episodes from classic variety series (helmed by performers such as Andy Williams, Carol Channing, Pearl Bailey, Dionne Warwick and Jim Nabors) acquired through agreements with Legacy Entertainment and Paul Brownstein Productions.
On January 1, 2018, the network began to air the most prominent sitcoms in the Sony Pictures Television library such as All in the Family, Sanford and Son and Good Times as part of their primetime lineup, after the expiration of Sony's contract with Tribune Broadcasting's Antenna TV, along with the expiration six months prior with Rural Media Group where SPT programmed that company's FamilyNet with classic sitcoms until they went in another programming direction as The Cowboy Channel.
