Exciting News & Updates from UCGIA

“Beyond Today” Television Update

July 20, 2012

World Harvest Network, Middle East TV and Far East TV are Airing Successfully

We recently reported that the United Church of God secured another exciting opportunity to expand its reach to multiple millions of additional television viewers. As of July 8, 2012, Beyond Today began airing to 25 million households coast-to-coast in the United States every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. (ET) on the World Harvest Network.

Our programs are also now airing on Sundays at 1:00 p.m. (GMT+2) on Middle East Television in every television home in Israel and to a potential audience of 200 million viewers in 22 Muslim countries. Additionally Beyond today airs on Family Entertainment Television (also known as Far East Television) every Sunday at 8:00 a.m. (GMT+2) via satellite on Intelsat 10, reaching a potential audience of 4.3 billion people throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.

In the past two weeks responses to Beyond Today were logged from the following 16 countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Dominican Republic, England, Guatemala, India, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Philippines, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago and United States.

We received this very inspiring response from a first-time Beyond Today viewer in Israel who saw the program on Middle East Television which broadcasts from Cyprus:

“I watched your program on TV and thought it was brilliant! I would love to have the free copy of “The Middle East in Bible Prophecy,’ if you still have this offer going! We live in Israel and would love to share this with the people over here! Thank you!”

Bonus Airings Offered

Finally, we are pleased to report that LeSEA Broadcasting, owner of the networks referenced above, have graciously provided us bonus airtime on two of their premiere stations. Beyond Today will air free-of-charge for four weeks on KWHB-TV 47 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. (CT) from July 29 through August 19, 2012, and on KWHS-TV 51 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. (MT) from August 26 through September 16, 2012.

As always, we are sincerely thankful for your prayers for God’s constant guidance and His great blessings. Our diligent home office media professionals are also deeply grateful for your faithful confidence, support and encouragement.

  4. We don’t have cable, so can’t get this. Are you going, to have it, on local station? I always pray for all, of you. Thank you and your families. I know you give and give, of your time. Hugs sandy

    • Sandy, we were on an Indianapolis broadcast station for a while over a year ago, but it was cost prohibitive for the responses we got. We’ve found that national cable networks give our best response for the dollar spent. We’re sorry, but if you don’t have cable your best option would be to watch the program online each week at http://www.beyondtoday.tv.
