TV Shows With Audio Description (Video Description) by Network

LAST TITLE UPDATE:  Feb 23, 2020; 233 TV series. "Specials" and movies are not included.  We list network AD Schedule or Reference pages or phone numbers when available.  Reruns may or may not occur, and perhaps on a different network.  "Not mandated" means the station is not required by the FCC to provide description.  When we hear that a show has been renewed or canceled for the next season, we mark it (for your reference as well as ours).  You can check the TV Scorecard yourself.  Notes at the bottom of this page address general information, other networks, and history.  Please report errors and omissions to the Webmaster!

See our Daily Listing of Described TV Programs
or a List of Previously Described TV Programs
or the ACB's Resolution to the FCC re AD Listings.
