Today, in a partnership with Trinity Broadcasting Network, Hillsong Church has launched The Hillsong Channel. The 24-hour channel will feature Hillsong Church’s globally recognized worship performances, conferences, documentaries, children’s programming, talk shows, and messages from Christian leaders – including Hillsong Senior Pastor Brian Houston and his wife Bobbi Houston.
"This powerful new praise and worship network will offer an amazing opportunity for us to reach a whole new generation of viewers with the message of hope and grace as we partner with the most iconic and far-reaching presence in contemporary Christian music." - TBN Chairman Matthew Crouch said in his statement.
Aberdeen Broadcast Services has been a proud partner of the Trinity Broadcasting Family of Networks for 15 years and can attribute much of our growth within the industry to that relationship. Beginning as a trusted closed captioning provider, we soon became one of TBN’s side-kicks in their transition into the digital age. Now, we are a reliable resource in the network’s digital video supply chain, providing closed-captioned, custom broadcast-transcoded digital files of programs airing on all of their channels. And because we have also worked with Hillsong Church since 2002, we are privileged to work alongside and witness the tremendous growth the ministry has experienced over the years.
Hillsong Church's reach extends across 14 countries and five continents and, according to its website, has an average weekly attendance worldwide of 100,000. The channel is a rebranding of TBN’s The Church Channel and is expected to reach over 60 million homes in the U.S. through a variety of cable providers, including Direct TV, Glorystar, Verizon Fios, AT&T, and Sky.
