Hello everyone, I'm writing today with some good news: We have finished getting our broadcast system hooked back up and fully functioning. This means that all programs should now be airing on their regular schedule. Church services and other programs that come into us on DVD are now playable again, so those will return to their original schedule as well. We are still working on copying some videos from our old server to the new one, which will probably take a bit more time, however we don't expect this to have an impact on the current schedule.

Hello everyone, Once again, we want to thank you for your patience. Our broadcast server upgrade has taken a little longer than we had originally expected. The good news is that we are almost running at full capacity again. We have begun to air many of our programs at their regularly scheduled times. The rest will hopefully return to their regularly scheduled times early next week.

Hi folks! Some of you may have noticed the text crawling across the screen about the upgrade that's taking place with our broadcast server. We wanted to give you a quick update on that. Our server is currently on the fritz, but we are expecting a new one to arrive any day now. In the meantime, we will only be airing Free Speech TV on Channel 12 and Classic Arts on Channel 15. Unless otherwise noted, all government shoots will still be broadcast live on the appropriate channels.
