WHO WE ARE

 

INSP is one of the most successful media and entertainment companies that you’ve probably yet to hear of.  Our flagship franchise is the INSP Network, one of today’s most popular television networks.  INSP is ranked in the Top 10 or better amongst all cable networks in Primetime Rankings – beating out networks like Discovery, History, Bravo, AMC, MTV, etc.  And we’re GROWING!  At a time when most networks are losing audiences, INSP just completed our highest rated year ever and our momentum continues.  We are one of the fastest-growing basic cable networks – yes, even in this ear of cord cutting.  We are currently available in over 67 million U.S. households, 24 hours a day, through more than 2,800 cable systems, TELCOs and satellite services like DISH and DIRECTV and on streaming services like Sling, fuboTV, Phil, Frndly TV, etc. 

 

Through our Imagicomm Entertainment subsidiary, we also produce series and films that are distributed worldwide for a variety of audiences.  You’ll find our content on an expanding array of platforms including linear channels (e.g. UPtv), subscription and free-on-demand services such as Netflix, Peacock, Amazon Prime, Fox Nation, etc. and in retailers such as Amazon, Walmart and Barnes & Noble.  We also just launched a FAST Channel, The Cowboy Way, that is growing fast.

 

We’re also a social media powerhouse with millions of fans across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc., and a digital content destination brining in millions of page views a month via our games, quizzes, blogs and much more.  And Cablefax Magazine just named INSP it’s Marketing Team of the Year for ’22, so you’ll be joining an All-Star team.
