Founded by Rory & Wendy Alec, GOD TV reaches almost half a billion homes worldwide including many countries that are home to people who have contacted Focus on the Family with questions on homosexuality. In the USA GOD TV can be watched on Channel 365 of DIRECTV, America's largest satellite platform as well as online at www.god.tv/stream. GOD TV will also later provide the programs via video on demand at www.god.tv/god.
"As a Christian broadcaster, it has been on my heart for years to reach out to those in the Church who may be struggling with issues of same-sex attraction, as these are so rarely addressed in our current Church environments," said Wendy Alec who heads up GOD TV's programming. "It is therefore a great privilege for GOD TV to be partnering with Focus on the Family to bring this much-needed series to TV screens across the globe."
"Homosexuality affects men and women from different countries and cultures," said Melissa Fryrear, director of Focus' gender issues department. "Yet the Bible's message to them remains the same: change is possible for those who struggle with unwanted same-sex attraction. The platform GOD TV provides us is a dream come true and an answered prayer. I can't think of a better way to commemorate Love Won Out's first decade than celebrating the important milestone at home, while sharing our joy with the world."
