GOD TV Distribution Update: With God, Increase is Always on the Way
Jesus came to give us life and life in abundance! Truly, we serve the God who not only adds or subtracts, but who multiplies. ‘Multiplication’ is certainly a word that comes to mind when one considers 22 years of GOD TV’s exponential growth. Now in 2017 we look forward to the next leap forward in our global distribution as we stand in faith and as we trust God for the same level of breakthrough for our viewers.
Who remembers Reinhard Bonnke’s well-known message ‘Jesus came to turn a minus into a plus’? The dearly loved evangelist (who hosts Good News on GOD TV) has often spoken of the Cross as God’s plus sign, sharing all Jesus has added to our lives. This is the Good News of the Gospel and we’re commissioned to spread it worldwide. That’s why since 1995, when GOD TV started, we have sought to impact the world through media.
In 1995 GOD TV took to the airwaves in the UK reaching only 22 countries in Europe two hours a day. Our schedule soon grew to seven hours, then 24 hours and in 2002 the historic move of our broadcast uplink to Israel opened the way for our signal to go global. All of a sudden we were strategically positioned on new satellites to broadcast worldwide from Jerusalem. Africa and Asia opened up first, followed by Australia and then North America in 2006. What started off just two-hours a day in Europe now reaches the globe 24/7.
According to GOD TV’s latest distribution report from our Head of Distribution, Klaus Leweling, we now reach 310 million homes worldwide. This is a potential viewership of 1.1 billion people, a vast figure that is constantly being added to. The scripture says some plant, others water, but it is God who brings the increase. (1 Corinthians 3:6) We are grateful to each partner who has planted or watered and we thank God for causing us to grow so we can reach more people.
GOD TV latest distribution breakthroughs
Our quest at GOD TV is to impact the world and every distribution breakthrough takes us a step closer. Like the dramatic announcement last Missions Week that we now reach 100 million homes in India and have launched in Thailand.
More recently, following our Bless Israel Campaign in January, GOD TV miraculously launched on HOT Cable in Israel making our programming available in 1.3 million Israeli homes. Furthermore, Africa’s largest satellite platform, DStv has opened up to GOD TV after many years of prayer.
From 3 April 2017 DStv viewers in South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Botswana, and Mozambique will be able to watch our extraordinary selection of Christian programming. Read our special report about GOD TV on DStv Launch
What was founded in the UK 22 years ago has gone from strength to strength, against all odds and will continue in years to come. GOD TV President and CEO, Ward Simpson and the GOD TV team are passionate about revival and also want to see an increase in our viewer’s lives as they grow in God.
We want to see you equipped to be a more effective witness where you live. If there is anything that can be learned from GOD TV’s example is that despite the obstacles, with God, an increase is always on the way!
God has called you and will equip you. Trust Him to take you further!
