RadioU TV[edit]

RadioU TV, formerly known as TVU, is a commercial-free, Christian rock television network which broadcasts through the Internet. It was formerly available on satellite and IPTV provider Sky Angel.

RadioU TV airs several shows, aside from its normal programming:

  • Battery plays metalcore music videos from bands such as Underoath, Norma Jean and Demon Hunter.
  • RadioU TV's Most Wanted (formerly TVU's Most Wanted, or TMW) is a countdown of the top videos of the week. Hudson is the host.
  • Fusion plays hip-hop artists.

RadioU TV is available for free in a 720p high-definition television format on the station's website. Standard-definition streams are also available in 360p and 480p.

In the past, RadioU TV (as TVU) was available as a standard-definition television channel on Sky Angel IPTV from 2007 to 2014, and on satellite from 2001 to 2008. TVU was also simulcast from 1 AM to 5 PM ET on the Kids & Teens TV (KTV) satellite station, which was available on Dish Network until January 31, 2019.[2]


RadioU is owned and operated by Spirit Communications, Inc., a non-profit organization funded by listener donations. RadioU does not have commercial sponsors and is kept running through listener donations received during its twice-yearly on-air fundraisers.
