The Church Channel is a Christian television network owned by Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). It broadcasts church service programs 24 hours per day, seven days a week from several of America’s leading churches, representing several Christian denominations, as well as independent and non-denominational churches. It broadcasts out of Nashville, Tennessee.
The network's programming consists of Christian worship services, 90% of which must be of an instructional, evangelistic or ministerial nature. The network puts strict guidelines on fund raising and other announcements, limiting them to 10% of the program. The Church Channel encourages churches to submit recordings of their services with the intent of putting them on the air.
The Church Channel is available over the air on digital subchannels of TBN affiliated stations nationwide, usually on the second subchannel (for example, if TBN is on channel 17, then Church Channel would be on 17.2).
It is also available on select U.S. cable systems, Dish Network, Glorystar (free-to-air Galaxy 19) and DirecTV, and in many nations around the world via direct-to-home satellite, such as ABS1 to India and the Middle East, Hot Bird satellite to Europe, and Agila 2 satellite both C-band and Ku-Band signal in Asia and the Philippines.
The network is also available via streaming video on their official website.
