Daystar's original programming includes Celebration, an hour-long daily talk show hosted by Daystar founders Marcus and Joni Lamb. The show includes performances by Joni and the "Daystar Singers" as well as a visiting Christian singer or band, as well as interviews with Christian leaders and preachers. Joni Lamb also hosts her own half-hour talk show called Joni, which includes additional interviews. Occasionally, Daystar will air specials featuring the Lambs at church speaking engagements. Daystar also airs a week-long, semi-annual telethon called a "Share-a-thon."
The majority of Daystar's affiliate stations are located in the American South. It is available World wide and with terrestrial and cable television network in the United States. It is also available on the DirecTV (ch. 369) direct broadcast satellite service, DISH Network (ch. 263). The company offers Christian programming 24/7. The Daystar network is composed of 2 VHF and 36 UHF television stations, which each broadcast all or part of Daystar's program lineup.
The majority of Daystar's broadcasts are from groups and individuals aligned with various charismatic and Pentecostal movements. It airs programs from many of the same controversial televangelists, such as Benny Hinn and Kenneth Copeland, as does Trinity Broadcasting Network. However, unlike TBN, the Daystar network airs programs from people such as David Reagan, Zola Levitt, Kerry Shook, Sid Roth, Jack Graham, Hal Lindsey and the Pensacola Christian College program Rejoice in the Lord which is directly opposed to the charismatic movement as a whole.
Daystar is currently under investigation by the Federal Communications Commission, centering on allegations that Daystar's selling of air time on its non-commercial/educational licensed stations to various groups as well as to for-profit companies is a violation of FCC rules regulating non-commercial/educational stations. The investigation, started in 2003, is still ongoing. The dispute complicated Daystar's $21.5m bid for KOCE-TV, a PBS-member station in Orange County, California.
