    Why change the lineup after the holiday movies?? What was writing with bewitched, facts of life etc etc etc?? It’s stupid

    I highly appreciate your Channel. I’m thankful that we do have at least one, still that has maintained moral and family values.

    Hi, The Art Of Christmas was supposed to air at 6:00 a.m. on Friday, December 17, 2022. Something else aired at that time. What happened? I love The Art Of Christmas movie.

    I will watch your movies as long as you promote traditional family values. The minute you begin to show gay or lesbian relationships, I will stop watching. I admire the courage of your actors to make a bold move to join GAC. I assume they are taking heat for their values.

    I am loving GAC Family !! We need at least one channel that supports our faith and family values. Thank you for continuing to show these amazing movies.

    We are enjoying the movies but repeating the same commercials 3 times in a row every commercial break is making us rethink watching.

    • December 26, 2022 at 9:53 PM

      They are a new channel. It will take proven ratings to get advertisers to jump on board. With the stand they took to keep traditional family values, they took a beating in the media and by the alphabet lobby whining. It will take time and proven high ratings for the advertisers to decide to place ads on this station. You need to be patient and support them and be thankful for the ones who were bold enough to support this channel despite the possibility of their being boycotted by the LGBTQDEMOCRAT+ mafia.

    It’s wonderful to have a channel that backs family values!! Thank you all for the great movies!

    I thought Aisle Be Home for Christmas was scheduled for tonight. Where is it?

    Could you tell me why DISH removed GAF ?

    • December 7, 2022 at 10:35 AM

      Hi Ruby, GAF was offered for free on DISH from Tuesday, 11/1 – Wednesday, 11/28. It is now only available with the America’s Top 250 plan I believe.
