TBN renews Intelsat contract

July 25, 2016

Intelsat, the global satellite operator, has announced that Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and America’s most-watched faith-based programming channel, has renewed its contract through the end of Intelsat’s Galaxy 14 life to distribute HD and SD programming to cable head-ends throughout North America.

Under the multi-year agreement, TBN is leveraging Intelsat’s premier video neighbourhood, Galaxy 14 at 125˚ West, to deliver programming to millions of viewers in North America. Galaxy 14 distributes more than 200 channels in North America, nearly 100 of which are HD.

“Intelsat’s premier video neighbourhood provides us access to the highest level of cable penetration, giving us access to millions of viewers in North America and maximising the audience for our faith-based content,” said Bob Fopma, Vice President of Production, Trinity Broadcasting Network.  “Galaxy 14’s resilience and the redundancy provided by the robust Galaxy fleet support our goals of reliability and efficiency for our North American distribution.”
