The article discusses on the importance of digital technologies to religious networks. Religious programmers consider these technologies as a blessing for them, and to their services. Through additional channel capacity, these faith-based networks could communicate and reach a wider audience in an easy way. Moreover, multichannel operators, including telco television providers are interested in carrying more faith based fare, and this move is considered beneficial to the religious networks.
