When you are the acknowledged leader Christian television, you try a little harder, dig a little deeper. That’s been standard operating procedure for nearly forty years. TBN programming includes many highly respected Christian pastors, evangelists and teachers. To name a few, John Hagee, TD Jakes, Joyce Meyer, Dr. Charles Stanley, Joel Osteen, Marilyn Hickey, Dr. Jack Hayford, Dr. Fred Price, Ed Young Jr., and Ed Young Sr., Jack Graham, Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, James Robison, Andrew Womack and many more.
When founders Paul Crouch and Jan Crouch launched TBN back in 1973 with one low-power UHF station—and a whole lot of vision—they had little idea that the network would one day span the globe with 24-hour faith and family-friendly television. “What we did know was that we were trail-blazers for Christian broadcasting,” said Paul Crouch, “and we felt a responsibility to use all the resources at our command to bring our growing audience the very best in inspirational, religious, and family programming.”
Thoughtful planning, cutting-edge technology, and bold innovation continue to make TBN the standard-bearer in faith and family broadcasting. Today, as the third largest broadcast group in the nation, TBN reaches every major continent via 78 satellites and more than 18,000 television and cable affiliates worldwide. In the United States, TBN is available to 92 percent of the total households, and globally its estimated potential reach approaches one billion viewers.
For fresh and innovative Christian programming, no channel tops TBN, bringing viewers such award-winning shows as Praise the Lord (a staple of religious broadcasting since the 1970s), the best in church and ministry programs, and such impacting documentary and information programs as Travel the Road and Drive Through History.
And don’t forget movies! From One Night With the King, starring screen legends Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif, to inspirational classics like China Cry and Carman: The Champion and end-times thrillers like The Omega Code and Megiddo, no faith-and-family channel offers more exclusive and original feature-length films for the whole family than TBN.
TBN is also the faith-based leader in high-definition programming. “Because high-definition is the future of television, we committed from the start to make sure TBN stays ahead of the curve in this crucial broadcast technology,” said TBN’s Chief of Staff. “Our state-of-the-art HD studio in Costa Mesa, California was a first for inspirational broadcasters. With three more HD studios in New York, Dallas, and Nashville, and several more on the drawing board, TBN is committed to staying on the cutting edge of broadcasting.”
TBN continues to make faith a relevant and vital element in today’s media landscape. “Our commitment to providing the best in entertaining, uplifting, and thought-provoking programming has never been higher. We take being the leader in faith and family-friendly programming very seriously. That’s been our mission for nearly four decades. Millions of viewers depend on that commitment.”
