[Via Satellite 07-22-2016] Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) has renewed its contract through the end of Intelsat’s Galaxy 14 satellite’s life to distribute High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) programming to cable head-ends throughout North America. Under the multi-year agreement, TBN is leveraging Intelsat’s video neighborhood at 125 degrees west to deliver faith-based programming to millions of viewers in North America.
Intelsat’s Galaxy 14 distributes more than 200 channels in North America, nearly 100 of which are HD. According to the operator, the satellite reaches more cable subscribers than any other satellite serving the region. TBN is the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and America’s most-watched faith-based programming channel.
