Christian programming-based Trinity Broadcasting Network will offer its new and library programming via the web as part of its new
iTBN online service.
The online service, which launches today (Sept. 15) is expected to choose programming from close to 10,000 hours of content - every existing piece of the network's 37-year backlog - including popular documentaries, educational and children's programming; music programming and Christian-themed movies.
The service will also allow viewers to watch clips of specific speakers, authors, musicians, and others who have appeared on TBN programs, as well as search for programs on specific faith issues they may want to know more about.
Consumers can also download a
to view programming on smart phones and mobile devices.
"Online broadcast is the future of TV," Crouch said in a statement. "Whether through laptops, smart phones and mobile devices, or even TVs connected to the Internet at home, more people are watching their favorite shows from online sources."
The network is currently talking to at least one MSO about offering the iTBN service to cable subscribers, but did not announce any deals.
