Holy Week for Gospel Music Channel, DirecTV
Cable Network to Launch on Satellite-TV Service Wednesday
By B&C Staff -- Broadcasting & Cable, 3/17/2008 12:13:00 PM
Gospel Music Channel will crack the DirecTV lineup Wednesday, which, for a 24/7 all-gospel/Christian-music channel, is heavenly timing -- smack dab in the middle of Holy Week.
By cracking DirecTV, the channel has now received carriage on cable or satellite-TV operations that reach into 40 million homes, which it claimed is the fastest growth spurt in cable history.
DirecTV will carry the network on channel 338.
On Sunday, Gospel will dub itself America’s Easter Channel and present a commercial-free marathon from 7 a.m.-7 a.m. (EST) Monday featuring artists of several Christian genres, including The Clark Sisters, The Isaacs, Austins Bridge, KJ52 and Tammy Trent.
“It’s not all women in robes,” vice chairman Brad Siegel said, refuting the idea that the channel is filled with gospel singers wall-to-wall.
Reaching the 40 million plateau, he added, “is like night and day with advertisers,” which generally don’t pay much attention to small channels.
We @ cts (christiantvservices.com .net .net etall will be realigning our various webs soon due to the death of Joyce Thayer & Russell Thayer listed on Page 2. Probably making present listing into an "In Memorium since her 'passing' 2 years ago on ST Pat's Day! Russell Thayer, aformer Free Methodist minister also succumbed!
CTS of Ellicottville (NY) was inc. in Cattaraugus County NY However does not accept advertising! LOCAL NET also has been requested for deletion as theytried to collect monies not donated to CTS!
NOTE the E mails of all 3 of my sons have changed & no longer desire any listings at all!
