On Feb 1st ION dropped the Worship Network (One of my favorite channels)

Anyway LyngSat shows it on AMC1 3840 H 26681 - which I assume is also gone because that is the ION location.

Does anyone know if The Worship Network is FTA anywhere?

I know I can still get it here - - - - The Worship Network - - - - - but . . . . .

Worship Network

I wondered where it went also. Cannot get it anymore FTA. Disappointed.

bringing this thread back...scanned 103W and Worship still is there. Still logged as Worship and yesterday they had music on with the "W" in the right bottom corner.

So its still on C-Band....just not OTA :)

yep, ION dropped them from their digital multicast platform.

I suppose the "affiliates" Worship still has are getting the signal from DVD or online (and if online, it might look as poor as a lot of the stuff on G19 Ku).

I don't see what I call "notaf"s on their website (notice to affiliates). I just see a note to viewers dated Jan 18th, 2010 concerning ION dropping them from the multicast service. I don't know why ION doesn't just lease them the bandwidth in their signal so Worship can continue to feed their over-the-air affiliates or other stations that would have kept them on a digital multicast channel despite the ION thing.

I was wondering how they still get it as Worship is still on affiliates part time

agreed

Seems like they could hook up with another provider and locate on 97W? Maybe I not thinking right here but they had to be getting their programming to ION somehow....uplinking...so surely there's another way to do it if they want to. Blind
