Arab Christians get satellite network TV coverage in North America

 

There are some four million people calling themselves Arab Americans, and almost two thirds of them in the United States are Christians. That is a lot more than the number of Americans living in, say China or Japan, and both those countries have channels such as CNN International, BBC and CNBC broadcasting.


With the upheaval and persecution that Christians face in the Middle East a substantial number of them are making North America their home.In 1996, SAT-7 a Christian television program, aired its first broadcast speaking as the voice of Arab Christians to viewers in the Middle East and North Africa.Then after 17 years, SAT-7 expanded its network onto a North American Arabic Channel which will start airing on November 3. "As the Arab population with strong ties to their homelands continues to grow within the United States and Canada, the launching of SAT-7 North America captures a tremendous opportunity for quality Arabic Christian television programming," said Terence Ascott, SAT-7 founder and CEO in a news release on October 9.
