Spokane, Wash., August 12, 2013 - He's Alive Television (KHBA UHF Channel 39) is now on Roku, an Internet streaming service. He's Alive Television, which originates from Spokane, Wash., and operates four channels for a local viewing audience, now travels to every corner of North America and beyond through this compact device that costs a one-time fee of $50 to $100.
He's Alive TV partnered with the BrightStar Channel in Southern California and TelVue in New Jersey to make this possible. For more detailed directions on getting He's Alive TV once hooked up on Roku, visit khbatv.com.
At the Upper Columbia Conference camp meeting booth area, Joe Stanfill, KHBA station manager, discovered that many people outside the Spokane viewing area have no access to local Christian television and are interested in connecting to Roku to watch He's Alive Television.
He's Alive TV serves the largest population base between Seattle and Minneapolis, Minn., and with this exciting new technology they are able to reach into nearly 6 million homes. "We are excited to move into this new arena of broadcasting," says Stanfill. "He's Alive Television is taking advantage of a tremendous opportunity." This service provides a budget-conscious way to expand and reach new viewers.
He's Alive Television began 21 years ago by Marlo Fralick, then pastor of the Spokane Central Adventist Church. Since its inception He's Alive TV has grown from one to four digital channels. It offers programs that are powerful and committed to teaching people of all ages about the love of Jesus, including the only Adventist Russian "Open Book Channel" 24/7 in the country and programs like "Echoes of Encouragement," Dare to Love" and "Gospel Outreach." A new children's show is also in process.
Through the Roku service, anyone can share the good news with people anywhere who want the option of viewing Christian programming and hearing biblically accurate messages. For additional information, contact the station at 509-622-4780 or go to khbatv.com.
He's Alive TV operates through the efforts, prayers and donations of nine churches in the Spokane area.
