New Christian lifestyle channel launched

A new Christian lifestyle channel Joy Christian Television Network will be launched as a free-to-air channel on March 29. The 24-hour new channel is an initiative of US based celebrity chef and author Rone de Beauvoir.

Joy plans to reach audiences on TV, radio, the Internet, mobile phones, and hand held computers. Distribution contracts have been signed for carriage on Galaxy 25 for coverage of North America and Eurobird 9 for Europe, Africa and Middle East.

Programming will be in English, French and Hebrew and will include 30 second and 60 second commercials, and “some surprising programme features never seen before on a Christian television channel.”
