GOD TV reaches a million more homes through Freesat launch
Media Release: 11 AUGUST, 2010
Global network GOD TV today announced its launch of the GOD Channel on free-to-air digital satellite service Freesat.
The GOD Channel’s 24-hour line-up of exclusive Christian programming, now available on Freesat channel 694, caters for the whole family and includes many premier LIVE events from the UK and around the world.
GOD TV was established by Rory & Wendy Alec in London in 1995 as Europe’s first daily Christian network. It has grown exponentially in the past 15 years to become the leading faith-based channel in the UK.
The launch of the GOD Channel on Freesat increases GOD TV’s reach to 14 million homes, boosting its national distribution by between 8 and 10%. It also increases GOD TV’s potential viewing audience of nearly half a billion people worldwide.
“GOD TV is committed to providing British viewers with the highest standard of Christian programming,” said GOD TV CEO, Rory Alec. “Freesat will enable more viewers in the UK to experience our unique schedule, with the added bonus that it has no subscription fee or monthly bills.”
As the UK’s only faith-based broadcaster with a global presence, GOD TV continues to break new ground for the Christian media in Britain and around the world. It is also the only Christian network to transmit from Jerusalem, the birthplace of Christianity. The GOD Channel is time-shifted for different regions and beamed worldwide from GOD TV’s global transmission centre in Israel.
GOD TV can be viewed worldwide and all across the UK via satellite, cable and the Internet. Online viewers can watch at www.god.tv/live or at www.god.tv/video via video on demand.
The channel will be automatically added to customers’ Freesat service via their television sets or digital boxes, so viewers will not need to take any action to enjoy the new addition to their channel line-up.
