Live Well HD Network is a home, health and lifestyle high definition digital subchannel network owned by Disney-ABC Television Group that launched on April 27, 2009, and broadcasts in a lower-bandwidth form of 720p in order to preserve bandwidth for the main HD station signal and additional 480i digital subchannels; for instance on WABC-TV, WABC-DT broadcasts at 10mbps, while Live Well HD on WABC-DT2 has a 5mbps signal, leaving 3mbps for their local version of The AccuWeather Channel in 480i on WABC-DT3.[1][2]

Currently, carriage of the network seems to be confined to all of the ABC O&Os on their Plus-branded subchannels (for instance, WABC-DT2 in New York), and carriage of the network has been picked up in high definition by Comcast's Houston, Texas system [3] and Cablevision's New York/Tri-State systems.[4] All of the other ABC O&O's are confirmed to air LWHDN on their region's majority cable systems according to the network's site, however it is unknown if the network on those systems will be carried in HD or in 480i standard definition. The network will also be offered by ABC to other affiliate groups.[5] Currently Live Well HD has plans to enter another top ten television market. [6]

According to the programming schedules for the subchannels which carry the network, it is not a strict 24/7 channel; the stations mix five 3 hour daily loops of Live Well HD's programming in with the existing schedules of their Plus channels, which usually feature each station's local newscasts aired on a delayed basis, local weather information, and ABC O&O local programming such as KGO-TV's View from the Bay.
