ok thats the Spirit Word Channel over on 97W KU (not the same)

this Spirit TV on 87W played music videos all the time "adult christian contemporary"
TVU plays a bit harder stuff ... they are sister channels put up by the same folks

That's odd, their website still says they will be on SkyAngel IPTV and the webstream is still up on their website.

Do we have a DirecTV/NFL Sunday ticket situation here? If you want Spirit TV, you must order SkyAngel IPTV; otherwise you are out of luck.

I doubt very seriously if that is the situation here.

I watched several times when they would make appeals for donations and stated that it cost $5,000 per month to keep the broadcast operational.

The people running the channel are certainly the kind of people who wanted to get their message out there for everyone.

I think it is simply a matter of not having enough funds to keep it alive.

or maybe since Sky Angel is leaving DBS they decided to discontinue the C-Band feed

Spirit's website is still up and the webstream is still up so it looks like they just stopped the Cband transmission at this time. Probally cheaper for them to send an internet feed to skyangel for the new iptv service.
