Smile (shortened from its original name of Smile of a Child) is an American Christian-based digital broadcast, digital cable and satellite television network owned and operated by the Trinity Broadcasting Network. The network is aimed at children between the ages of 2 and 12 years and offers a mix of children's religious and family-oriented programming. The network was founded as the television arm of TBN's Smile of a Child ministry, created by TBN co-founder Jan Crouch.
Although since June 1, 2015, it shares channel space with sister network JUCE TV over-the-air, Smile continues to operate as a separate channel from JUCE on pay television providers as well as on select digital streaming services that offer TBN's six U.S. networks.
The network is available in the U.S. on DirecTV and Dish Network and throughout North and Central America as a free-to-air channel on Galaxy 14 C-band, Galaxy 19 Ku band and available with Glorystar Christian Satellite. Internationally, Smile is on the Hot Bird satellite service in Europe, ABS1 satellite to Asia, India and the Middle East, and Agila 2 both C-band and Ku band signal in some areas of Asia and the Philippines. The network is also live streamed on both its own and TBN's website.
In addition, a parent network TBN runs a "Smile" block on Saturday mornings. On October 26, 2015, Kids & Teens TV aired a block of Smile programming until sometime in 2017.
