THE Seventh-day Adventist Church will now air free television shows based on inspirational programs and healthy living following its licence approval from government this month.
HOPE TV can now be viewed in the greater Suva area, Pacific Harbour and parts of Tailevu. Plans are in the pipeline to expand the network to other parts of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu in a few months.
SDA communication director Joe Talemaitoga said the HOPE channel reached North America and covered Africa, Asia, Europe, South America and the Pacific.
"We already have HOPE FM and now we can deliver virtual Bible study, prayer, and health programs to viewers in their own living rooms," he said.
The 24-hour network was because of its content, he said.
"The programs we offer are worth watching for all family members. We will also run local and international programs.
"To make a real difference in people's lives, we feature ageless principles of health, education and family — all backed up by science-based research."
