THE CHURCH CHANNEL
The Church Channel (TCC) features worship services from America's leading churches and represents a wide variety of denominations, as well as many independent and non-denominational churches. TCC has launched onto DirectTV with 14.4 million households and over 120 million homes in Europe, Western Russia, the Middle East, and North Africa. TCC is also seen in Australia and New Zealand. Just recently, TCC launched on nearly 150 cable systems in The Philippines and many more nations are just on the horizon with the powerful news of Jesus Christ.
The Church Channel is also available as a digital channel to cable and DBS providers nationwide. It is estimated that digital cable and satellite will reach more that 20 million households within the next two years. As you know, the cable industry's direction is moving at a fast pace toward digital television. We see the same technology coming to broadcast television in the near future and we truly believe that the growth opportunities for The Church Channel will be tremendous.
