LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world's largest religious broadcaster, announced that the TBN flagship network, along with its affiliated Enlace Spanish language Christian network, have been added to the channel lineup for Google Fiber, the revolutionary lightning fast Internet and High-Definition TV service launched by Google in Kansas City.
Through Google Fiber, nearly 90 percent of Kansas City, Kansas and central Kansas City, Missouri will have access to connectivity speeds of one gigabit per second — an amazing 100 times faster than average U.S. connection speeds — which will equate into super-fast Internet access as well as crystal clear, uninterrupted HD TV.
"We're thrilled to join this innovative advance in Internet and broadcast technology," said Matt Crouch, TBN's Vice President of Administration. "Since our launch nearly 40 years ago, TBN has made it a priority to stay on the leading edge of industry standards. Google is raising the bar for Internet speed and broadcast clarity, and TBN is proud to be one of the select networks Google Fiber subscribers will enjoy."
Mr. Crouch recalled that TBN was one of the first networks to utilize satellite technology to broadcast Christian television across the nation and around the world. TBN was also a leader in offering faith-and-family programming to viewers via the Internet both through streaming technology and Video on Demand. And through its smart phone apps, as well as its iTBN online video portal, TBN is leading the way in taking inspirational programming to more people, more often, and in more places. "Our tagline — TBN Everywhere — means just that," said Mr. Crouch. "We're committed to ensuring that all 18 of our global Christian networks are available where our viewers need and want them — 24 hours everyday."
TBN's flagship network, America's most watched and requested faith channel, along with Enlace, the premier Christian channel for Hispanic viewers, comprise the perfect combination of inspirational channels for Google Fiber TV, said TBN's founder, Dr. Paul Crouch. "As this innovative service expands to other cities across the nation," he said, "we look forward to being there to provide the faith and family programming that has made TBN a household name around the world."
