The Church Channel is an American Christian-based broadcast television network that was launched on January 17, 2002 and is owned by the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). It broadcasts church service programs 24 hours a day from several of America’s leading churches, representing several Christian denominations, as well as independent and non-denominational churches. The network's headquarters are based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Overview

The network's programming consists of Christian worship services, 90% of which must be of an instructional, evangelistic or ministerial nature. The network puts strict guidelines on fundraising and other announcements, limiting them to 10% of the program.[1] The Church Channel encourages churches to submit recordings of their services with the intent of putting them on the air.

The Church Channel is available over-the-air on digital subchannels of TBN owned-and-operated and affiliated stations nationwide, usually on the second subchannel (for example, if the local TBN station broadcasts on channel 17, then The Church Channel would be carried on digital subchannel 17.2).

It is also available on select U.S. cable providers, Dish Network, Glorystar (free-to-air Galaxy 19) and DirecTV, and in many nations around the world via direct-to-home satellite, such as ABS1 to India and the Middle East, Hot Bird satellite to Europe, and Agila 2 satellite both C-band and Ku-Band signal in Asia and the Philippines. The network also livestreams its programming on its official website.
