As more and more broadcasters offer popular programmes over the internet, GOD

TV is aiming to increase viewing numbers for its 24 hour schedule by beefing up its
website, http://www.god.tv. As well as being available on cable and satellite networks,

platform will enable it to reach a far greater audience around the world. The GOD
Channel and GOD UK are part of GOD TV’s international line-up of Christian
programming that includes conferences, in-depth interviews, youth and music shows,
and features prominent Christian leaders.

internet server facility to house the content and create facilities for streamed media
services. ntl:Telewest Business is providing a high-speed 100 Megabits-per-second
(Mbps) Ethernet connection to ensure that the new internet services offer optimum
performance and can cope with viewer demand. GOD TV hopes to create 25 new
positions as it expands its operations in the Plymouth area.
