At REELZ we embrace the American Dream … the Independent dream.

We shop our favorite independent stores, eat at the neighborhood family-owned restaurants and get our kids a treat at the local ice cream parlor. If that seems old fashioned, it isn’t … it’s how we live. We just never thought of it that way until businesses weren’t open.

With America reopened, now more than ever, it’s time to support the independent business near you.


At REELZ, we know the lifeblood of America comes from the businesses who keep our country and our economy strong by providing products, services and even the entertainment we need. Independent businesses also provide the jobs that keep America working. We know this because REELZ is a family-owned and operated independent business and we have been working to keep you entertained and informed since our launch on Satellite TV in 2006.

People across America are saying that they want to help independent business grow and thrive. While REELZ has now grown into a top Cable, Satellite and Streaming Television provider, we are grateful that we have been able to do so– thanks to our viewers and our advertisers.


At REELZ we’re not just an independent business, we support independent business, too. We all have our favorite coffee shop, restaurant or hardware store, bookstore or pet shop. In current times, it is hard for these businesses to survive competition from big box stores and chains. That’s why independent business needs the spotlight more than ever. Check out the inspiring stories on our Independent News Page for updates, insights and tips from –and about– small business owners and entrepreneurs who are making a difference in their communities.


Now that restaurants and stores are back in full-swing, go out and eat and shop again. You’ll be supporting a local business and its employees—even if you order online or by phone. Visit your local hardware store, bookstore or boutique. Give your “best friend” something special with a treat or toy from the pet store.  America’s local businesses are working hard to make their communities thrive and we should all do our part to support them.

Operating an independent business in any field is as challenging as it is rewarding, and the television industry is no different. REELZ is proudly independent and committed to the health and well-being of our employees, clients and viewers. We understand that recent events have had a profound effect on all of our communities in every corner of the nation. During this time, we encourage every person to heed the stay safe recommendations of the CDC and our local and regional health experts as we support independent businesses that are open now and will be opening in the days and weeks ahead. As our favorite local businesses re-open and re-hire, their communities will support them and America will rebound stronger than ever.

Stay safe and be proud of your independence!
