"The GOD TV family around the world celebrate with us in exceeding the 20 million homes threshold," said GOD TV co-founder and chief executive, Rory Alec. "This is an important milestone for us as we seek to make our programming more available to viewers from coast to coast and of course it also increases our global distribution as we seek to reach one billion viewers."
Founded in the UK in 1995 by Christian media pioneers, Rory & Wendy Alec, GOD TV's worldwide distribution has grown exponentially over the past 14 years and today almost half billion people have GOD TV in their home. GOD TV is also the only Christian broadcaster to transmit from Jerusalem, the birthplace of Christianity, where eight separate GOD TV feeds are beamed across the world from its global transmission center, including GOD TV USA.
