TBN Launches High Definition Channel on AT&Tís U-Verse TV Service
Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world’s largest religious broadcaster and most watched and requested faith channel, has announced the launch of its high-definition network, TBN-HD, on AT&T’s U-verse TV service.
“Because high-definition is the future of television, we committed from the start to make sure TBN stays ahead of the curve in this crucial broadcast technology,” said Paul Crouch Jr., TBN’s Chief of Staff. “Our state-of-the-art high-definition studio in Costa Mesa, California was a first for inspirational broadcasters. With three more HD studios in New York, Dallas and Nashville as well as several more planned for the future TBN is committed to staying on the cutting edge of broadcasting.
In addition to TBN’s flagship program Praise the Lord, a host of other popular programs are featured on TBN-HD, including The 700 Club, a daily program of news, information, and inspirational interviews; Travel the Road , an edge-of-your-seat reality show that takes you to exotic locations around the world; Drive Thru History, a fast-paced program shot in the locations where monumental history was made; and Hour of Power, the popular church service originating from world-renowned Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California.
“Trinity Broadcasting is blazing a cutting-edge trail across the airwaves of America and the world by delivering healthy, positive programming in High Definition,” said Jim Penner, Senior Producer for Hour of Power. “Congratulations to the TBN family for making this technological leap forward.”
Bob Higley, TBN’s Vice President for cable and satellite relations, noted that with its launch on AT&T’s U-Verse, TBN-HD is now available to nearly two million viewers nationwide. “But that’s just a start,” he added. “With TBN’s expansion of more high-definition programming, we anticipate that TBN-HD could become the primary signal to the majority of cable and satellite companies that have plans to covert their programming lineups to all digital and high definition channels.”
