Hope channelTo effectively manage this change and its future broadcasting needs, Hope Channel has made an investment of 2.8 million dollars in a broadcast system that is highly automated, customizable, and one that requires less in staff resources and labor cost than the option used thus far. Currently five of the thirty-three satellite channels in Hope Channel’s global network are being broadcast from the new system in Silver Spring, which has the capacity to broadcast a total of thirteen channels.

“The benefits of this new system will be seen and experienced in several ways,” says Gabriel Begle, Vice President of Programming, Production, and Broadcast. “We now have the ability to easily insert relevant spots, ensure high quality images, offer closed captioning, and broadcast in high-definition.”

Hope Channel is excited about bringing its broadcast service in-house and all its benefits to the many Seventh-day Adventist organizations with which it partners to share God’s good news for a better life today and for eternity.
