RR Media has extended the current distribution partnership with Christian Television Network (CTN).

This will now include an online HD channel available on the Roku platform as well as a video player for the CTN website to support any device including PCs, tablets and smartphones.

RR Media takes the channel content originating at CTN’s facilities in Largo, Florida and distributes via its global network, which is optimised for delivery over satellite, fibre and the internet to North American direct-to-home platforms as well as sending the feed to RR Media’s Middle East media centre for delivery to Asian and African TV service providers.

Douglas Parrish, Head of RR Media’s Global Online Business Unit comments: “We are pleased to be continuing our relationship with CTN in order to take their inspirational messages to a worldwide audience. CTN realises that online video platforms provide a fantastic method to deliver content over a fast developing medium.”

Bob D’Andrea, president of CTN said: “We’re happy to continue and expand our work with an innovative company like RR Media in order to deliver inspirational programming that appeals to a broad cross section of viewers in multiple regions around the world.”
