DISH and DirecTV add Inspiration

The Inspiration Network has been added to Echostar’s DISH DTH system as well as DirecTV. The channel will go live on both systems on August 27.

Inspiration Network says it is much more than a “religious” channel, and “targets the millions of viewers who embrace inspirational values. The network features original and exclusive music and talk programs, programs for kids, teens, women, and men, along with a wide variety of programs from some of the world's leading ministries.” Inspiration carries programming from 20 different faith groups.

DISH and DirecTV adds more than 30 million viewing homes to Inspiration’s distribution, and with cable access takes its total distribution to more than 54m homes across the USA.
