from what i understand it is a requirement to promote sky angel to be onboard.

Yes. But a small price to pay for FREE carriage.

Free is a high price when it is purely the Dominion's opinion that the network has paid "the price" of promotion. Remember that SkyAngel was ready to give Daystar the boot.

Personally, I'd rather pay cash for carriage.

I am looking forward to the day when Daystar is gone from the lineup.

I do agree that these networks should pay for carriage. Maybe they would have more incentive to promote Sky Angel.

I guess you can tell that I have little good for most of these networks, meaning Daystar, INSP etc... "I broke the back of poverty with a $1000 pledge" :rolleyes: Which TV preacher said that?

i wish they would offer more family friendly programming instead of more preachers convincing you that God is a 401k. I heard a comedian a while back that said to beware of preachers who say give to God but mail it to their post office box.

I have been constantly checking Sky Angel’s TV channel lineup page to see if a new channel is listed yet to replace INSP. I am also looking for the March e-newsletter. One thing I noticed is that CTN Detroit is no longer listed. The Sky Angel link is still at the CTN web site though. Maybe Sky Angel is updating the web page?

In the February/March issue of NRB magazine Glenn Plummer says “Farewell” as the Chairman/CEO of the National Religious Broadcasters. Glenn wants to “pursue the development of my own TV network. With the help and grace of the Lord, (and a little help from some friends), I intend to build a major television force in America.”

I wonder if Sky Angel is a part of his plans? It will be interesting to see what happens.

Total Living Network is coming to Sky Angel on or around 4/20/05 on channel 9714. This probably means that CTN - Detroit will be leaving the line-up.

No word on the replacement for INSP

For the life of me I will never understand why people will pay hundreds and thousands of dollars on a TV that provides the clearest, sharpest, most realistic picture possible and then, voluntarily, distort the image!

Hot off the press (March E-Newsletter that is).

TLN is coming to Sky Angel ch 9714 approx. April 20.

Is CTN Detroit going away?

The only secular program I see is Little House on the Prairie and only three times a week. The good news for some folks is Shepard's Chappel plays every day.

Here is the program schedule:

I understand that Hallmark has the national rights to Little House so TLN may not be able to air this program nation wide on Sky Angel, unless they can renegotiate for the rights. The Hallmark channel is in Sky Angel's future anyway so I guess it doesn't make any difference.

I don't think we need any more of Arnold Murray though. Do a Google search on some of these TV preachers sometime.
