In the words of the divine Miss O, here are a few reasons OWN will stand out from other networks.

“OWN is the network of self-discovery, connecting people to each other and to their greatest potential. We tell real life stories that are emotional and entertaining.We present moments of transformation that inspire action. We give you the tools to fuel your own self-discovery and live your best life.On OWN, it’s not about what’s next on TV, it’s about what’s next for you.”

“Fifteen years ago, I wrote in my journal that one day I would create a television network, as I always felt my show was just the beginning of what the future could hold. For me, the launch of OWN is the evolution of the work I’ve been doing on television all these years and a natural extension of my show.”
