Trinity Broadcasting Recommits to Intelsat Galaxy Fleet
Intelsat and longtime customer Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) signed a multi-year agreement to distribute HD and standard definition programming to cable head-ends throughout North America.
Under the previously announced agreement, TBN, America’s most-watched faith channel, will reach more than 100 million households in the United States through Intelsat’s highly penetrated Galaxy 14 video neighborhood. Galaxy 14 distributes more than 200 channels in North America, with close to 100 channels in HD.
As the world’s largest religious network, TBN relies on the ubiquity of Intelstat's Globalized Network to expand to new markets and cost-effectively deliver programming to millions of viewers. Leveraging Intelsat’s distribution platform, TBN programming will reach more than 100 million U.S. viewers.
TBN’s programming is predicted to seamlessly transition to a next-generation Galaxy satellite at the same orbital location over the span of the long-term contract, as the new collaboration will allow them to reach more subscribers than any other satellite in the United States.
"Intelsat sets the industry standard for delivering reliable media services that allow broadcasters to deliver programming that attracts more viewers. The resiliency and high penetration rate of Intelsat’s Galaxy 14 neighborhood has been vital to our growth strategy and expanded our audience base to reach our audience with our faith-based, high-quality programs."— Robert Fopma, TBN, COO
