Tri-State Christian Television, doing business as TCT Network and TCT Ministries, is a network of eight religious television stations and their repeaters, mainly in the Midwest. TCT Network provides Christian programming such as teaching, preaching, family-based movies, music, documentaries, youth and children, live broadcasts and original content. The network also features a mixture of programming produced by TCT, such as TCT Today, TCT Alive and Come On In, along with a children-oriented programming block made by the network, branded as TCT Kids.

There is also an international service, TCT World, now broadcasting in over 170 nations, which covers every continent except South America. TCT World's schedule is also around-the-clock. TCT World, like their three over-the-air television feeds, can also be viewed online via their live streaming video feed on their website archived videos of recent TCT Today and TCT Alive programs are available for viewing on their website.

TCT is also available on DirecTV on channel 377, and on Sky Angel channel 133.

The network was founded in May 1977 by Garth and Tina Coonce, who are still both involved in TCT today, as well as hosts of their flagship program, which, is TCT Today.

From the mid-1980s to 2007, TCT was an affiliate of the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

TCT HD and TCT Family 
TCT' High-Definition feed offers some programming differences from its primary, SD feed, and unlike most other digital broadcasters, the station's HD feed is on channel x.2 and its SD feed is on channel x.1.

TCT Family 
In late 2009, the network began rolling out a third video feed on their website and digital television stations on x.3 called TCT Family and TCT-SD3 on their website (which shows up at TCT-SD2 on PSIP). This feed primarily airs the TCT Kids children's programming block during weekday and Saturday mornings, with public domain secular sitcoms and programs such as Petticoat Junction, Bonanza, The Lucy Show, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, Racket Squad, Dragnet, The Roy Rogers Show and The Beverly Hillbillies rounding out the schedule.
