The channels on a secular system like DirecTV or the current Christian channels on Dish Network are free. When people are sitting around their homes tired of what is on the other 250-300 channels they get just looking for something else on E* to watch there is a range of channels where 24/7 there are offers they cannot refuse. Unfortunately those are shopping channels.
If the number of Christian channels can be increased ... especially expanded so more variations (such as kids and music channels) are placed on the air ... there is a better chance of being evangelical and actually fulfilling the Great Commission. There are a couple of channels mixed in with all the other stuff on E* ... they stand there like the street preacher, beaconing for someone to listen.
What SkyAngel is now (other than the one free channel on E*) and what SkyAngel IPTV will be is not evangelical ... it is just preaching to the choir. A great choice for those who already have made a decision and others in their household but certainly not a commission filling service. SkyAngel sits in a pew in a church waiting for someone to come in (with their first response being to require an offering before giving any encouragement).
Add to that the non-compete agreement E* had with Sky Angel (and Sky Angel actually enforced through the court system) where E* was strictly prohibited from adding new religious channels. Not only was Sky Angel set up not to be evangelical but they contracted with E* to prevent new channels from being evangelical over the E* system. In essence, they blocked the gospel.
So yes, I really hope that post SkyAngel E* steps in and places many religious channels on their system. Even though the screams from people who would rather have HD or other channels will be loud, there is a "market" for Christian TV. Viewers want it ... even if they don't know they want it.

I wonder how long it is going to take them to let all the "lifetime" subscribers know that they are going to get screwed. All of us that read the this board already know that but we are a very small percentage of Sky Angel's "lifetime" subscribers. I mentioned to a couple that I know that has a "lifetime" subscription (but no computer access) what is going to happen and they said, "Sky Angel wouldn't do that, would they?" I think a lot of "lifetime" people are going to be shocked when they hear the news.

# IPTV technology allows for programming services to be viewed on conventional TVs, personal computers as well as handheld instruments. Sky Angel IPTV will initially be available only through your TV; however we are exploring these viewing options as possible future enhancements to the Sky Angel service.
They will explore this as a "future enhancement", and what enhanced cost too? We saw how well skyangel followed through on its past promises to lifetime members......

Notice Liberty still isn't on the list?! I also don't see 3abn. As for the rest most are on DISH family or glorystar
If memory serves me correct 3ABN signed a deal with Dish Network several months ago and is in their lineup at their old channel 9710.
