Beyond Today TV on The Word Network
Fridays - 4:00 PM Eastern
Saturdays - 6:30 PM Eastern

When ION Television reduced its Sunday morning availability for religious programming at the end of last year, we were forced to choose a weekday morning for Beyond Today, and we began airing on Friday mornings. While response has been improving over time, the Friday morning audience has not worked out as well as we desired. Therefore, effective May 29, we have cancelled our contract with ION and signed a new agreement with a familiar network of the past: The Word Network.

We will air twice per week: Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. Eastern, followed by Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m. Eastern. And it all begins the weekend of April 24 and 25! In addition, these times translate very well for our U.K., Europe and Africa audiences—which is later in the evening for them. [Here is a current listing of channels and networks airing Beyond Today.]

Word Network’s reach

The Word Network is available in over 200 countries reaching millions of viewers in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Americas. It reaches 86 million homes in the U.S. alone through DirecTV, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Cox, Cablevision, Charter, and a host of other cable operators—and another 9 million homes on Sky TV in the U.K.

The Word Network is also provided to 1 million men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces in over 65 countries. And it just expanded its reach to Latin America.

Word’s website streams all programming live and is also available to thousands of air travelers daily through “In Flight” services on selected airlines.

New streaming opportunities

Our desire is to put Beyond Today on various streaming platforms and set-top television boxes in addition to Roku—such as Amazon Fire TV, Google TV, Apple TV and other emerging devices—bringing our video program before even more viewers.

The airtime mix will be expanded—the usual traditional broadcast/cable/satellite TV—plus new innovative streaming devices, both of which have the goal to deliver our Beyond Today program to additional viewer’s TV screens.

Your prayers for the ongoing success of our various efforts to preach the good news of God’s Kingdom and for His guidance and blessing is certainly appreciated—especially for the success of these new airtimes on the Word Network.
