List of Ion Life affiliates

Ion Life is an American lifestyle-oriented broadcast, cable and satellite television network owned by Ion Media Networks, which was launched on February 19, 2007. As of November 2015, the network currently has current and pending affiliation agreements with 65 television stations, the vast majority of which are owned by its corporate parent.[1][2] Ion Life also distributes its base national programming feed directly to cable, satellite and IPTV providers in various media markets not listed here, as an alternative method of distribution in areas without a locally based owned-and-operated or affiliate station.

This article is a listing of current, pending and former Ion Life affiliates in the continental United States (including subchannel affiliates, satellite stations and select low-power translators), arranged alphabetically by state, and based on the station's city of license and followed in parentheses by the Designated Market Area if it differs from the city of license. There are links to and articles on each of the broadcast stations, describing their histories, technical information (such as broadcast frequencies) and any local programming.

The station's virtual (PSIP) channel number follows the call letters, and is itself followed by the station's actual digital channel number, which are listed as separate columns. The article also includes a list of its former affiliate stations, which is based strictly on the station's city of license or market, and denotes the years in which the station served as an affiliate as well as the current status of the corresponding channel that carried the network.

This film, television or video-related list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it with reliably sourced additions.

Current affiliates

Notes:

  1. This list includes Ion Media Networks-owned stations (most of which incorporates the letters "PX" in their call signs, in reference to the pre-2007 name of its corporate parent, Paxson Communications), which are also listed separately from its affiliated stations in the article List of stations owned and operated by Ion Media Networks.
  2. This list does not include parent network Ion Television and sister network Qubo, which are carried on most of the stations listed. For a list of affiliates of those networks, see List of Ion Television affiliates and List of Qubo affiliates.
