TBN launches HD channel on AT&T’s U-Verse TV service

MUMBAI: Religious broadcaster Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) has announced the launch of its high-definition network, TBN-HD, on AT&T’s U-verse TV service in the US.
TBN’s chief of staff Paul Crouch Jr. says, "Because high-definition is the future of television, we committed from the start to make sure TBN stays ahead of the curve in this crucial broadcast technology. Our state-of-the-art high-definition studio in Costa Mesa, California was a first for inspirational broadcasters. With three more HD studios in New York, Dallas and Nashville as well as several more planned for the future TBN is committed to staying on the cutting edge of broadcasting."

In addition to TBN’s flagship programme Praise the Lord, a host of programmes are featured on TBN-HD, including The 700 Club, a daily programme of news, information, and inspirational interviews; Travel the Road , a reality show that takes viewers to exotic locations around the world; Drive Thru History, a programme shot in the locations where monumental history was made; and Hour of Power, the church service originating from world-renowned Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California. 
Hour of Power senior producer Jim Penner says, “Trinity Broadcasting is blazing a cutting-edge trail across the airwaves of America and the world by delivering healthy, positive programming in High Definition. Congratulations to the TBN family for making this technological leap forward.”
TBN’s VP for cable and satellite relations Bob Higley noted that with its launch on AT&T’s U-Verse, TBN-HD is now available to nearly two million viewers across the US. “But that’s just a start. With TBN’s expansion of more high-definition programming, we anticipate that TBN-HD could become the primary signal to the majority of cable and satellite companies that have plans to covert their programming lineups to all digital and high definition channels," he adds.
