Satellite Change Update
Posted by Aaron Cozort
We are continuing our work to convert the GBN satellite feed from the Ku-band to the C-band. We have already picked up 3 of our former cable systems who will once again carry the network, with others considering it! Please pray that our efforts bring GBN into more homes in the coming months. For those who watch GBN on a Ku dish, there are a few things that we’d like to tell you about.
First, the Ku signal will remain on through at least the end of January, and may very possibly continue on into February as we work to convert our existing cable providers over to the new feed.
Second, we are also working diligently to develop a cost-effective C-band system for our viewers who can only view the network on a dish. Our goal is to put together a system of components that we know work well together. We’ll update you as we test some home setups in the coming weeks, but we’re very optimistic at this point.
Third, we hope that the range of options to view the network meets your needs going forward – internet, Roku, or inexpensive C-band system. The network is saving $180,000 per year and we’re able to reach more cable systems (and more souls) by making this change.
