An official release will be made tomorrow, but SatelliteGuys will hear it first!

Glorystar has been authorized by the marketing department at the Hope Channel to announce that The Hope Channel, Esperanza TV, Hope Church Channel and LifeTalk Radio will be staying on the current satellite AMC4 and transition to the new replacement satellite SES1 due to be placed into service May 1, 2010.

SES1 satellite is projected to provide a much better signal for the US and Canada viewers and the transition to the new satellite should be completely seamless without any adjustments to current receivers or dishes.

Remember, if you have a two LNBF Glorystar dish, you will continue to receive all existing and all new Adventist channels on both satellites and no dish adjustment will be necessary.

We will post more information when it becomes available.

Is the replacement to have a smaller footprint? If so, will it impact those of us in the southern tip of Texas?

The projected footprint of SES1 should provide equal or better coverage of all of the US (including Alaska and Hawaii) and Canada. The majority of the US should experience signal gains.

The signal appears to drop off rapidly deep inside of Northern Mexico and probably will not reach Jamacia, Haiti or any of the Northern Caribbean islands.

Hope Channel Official Satellite Statement:


Wednesday, March 10, 2010


Dear Friends,

NOTE: This message is applicable only for Hope Channel, Esperanza TV, and Hope Church Channel viewers in North and Inter-America watching on the AMC 4 satellite. This message does not affect viewers watching Hope Channel online, on a Glorystar dual LNB system, or on DIRECTV channel 368.

At the present time, viewers do not have to change their satellite dish to continue enjoying Christ-centered, family-friendly programming on Hope Channel. Please tell your friends.

Potential Changes
We recognize the convenience to our viewers of Hope Channel, Esperanza TV, and Hope Church Channel being on the same satellite with other Adventist networks such as 3ABN and LLBN.

Hope Channel is actively working through legal and budgeting issues to make it possible for Hope Channel to also be on the Galaxy 19 (G19) satellite. However, there is no hurry for viewers to make a change. You will be notified before a change is made. Should you wish to upgrade from a single LNB system to a dual LNB system that receives AMC4 and G19, please contact Adventist Satellite at 888-393-HOPE (4673).

Our Plan
Hope Channel will continue to broadcast on our current satellite – AMC4. Viewers do not need to change their satellite dish to continue to receive Hope Channel. We have been assured that AMC 4 will last for many more months. As soon as we are able to finalize arrangements, our goal is to transition to G 19. We will inform you as soon as possible once these arrangements are made.

In summary,
1.[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]You do not need to change your satellite dish to continue to receive Hope Channel. Hope Channel is continuing to broadcast as normal on our current satellite.

2.[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]Please watch for further announcements from Hope Channel on air, through the mail, and at Hope CHANNEL. If God providentially provides the funding and we can clear other obstacles, we will move to G19 so that everyone has the option of viewing all the Adventist channels on one satellite.

3.[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]We invite your financial support. As we plan for our move to G19, significant additional funding for Hope Channel will be required.

Thank you again for your prayerful and sacrificial support of the Hope Channel network. This is an expanding ministry. We currently broadcast ten separate channels to a worldwide audience and are in the final stages of adding new satellite channels for the Middle East, Russia, India, and China. The world needs to know that Jesus is coming soon and we’re going to tell them!

Sincerely, in His service,

Brad Thorp, President

Ouch, I know a lot of people that will be disappointed in them staying at 101. Now people that want Adventist channels only will have to choose either Hope or the 3ABN group. Bad move honestly. Doesn't effect Glorystar users but I know quite a few that only have a single LNB dish just for the Adventist channels.

This is true but there are a lot of little old ladies that got the "Hope" system to get all the Adventist channels and it will be difficult for them to do such an upgrade, being little old ladies and such. I'm just saying, Hope really needs to look at getting on 97 as well.
