TBN Launches On Hong Kong's now TV

Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) said its centerpiece faith-and-family channel, TBN, is now airing 24 hours a day on Hong Kong's largest pay-TV provider, now TV. Broadcast on channel 544, TBN offers a variety of Christian church and ministry programs, music, family-friendly movies, children's programming and shows for teens and young adults.

“We are excited to introduce TBN's unique and impacting mix of faith-and-family programming to households throughout Hong Kong,” TBN vice president Matthew Crouch said in a release. “We're sure our new viewers will find that no other faith-based network offers the broad range of entertaining, educational, and inspiring programming available 24 hours every day on TBN. We're honored to be on board with Hong Kong's now TV.”

Originating from TBN's Asia broadcast hub in the Philippines, the new network's programming is predominantly in English, with the addition of some regionally produced Mandarin-language inspirational programming.

TBN said that with an estimated 1,300 Christian congregations throughout Hong Kong, it expects to add locally produced programming to the TBN broadcast schedule in the coming months, featuring pastors, speakers and Christian leaders from throughout the area.
