Lenexa, Kan.—The National Television Cable Cooperative has expanded its transponder deal with OlympuSAT Inc.

The revised agreement adds the “OlympuSAT II transponder,” which contains its “Faith and Families Pack” of services. NCTC members can now carry Daystar Television Network, Golden Eagle Broadcasting, JCTV, The Church Channel, BYU, Three Angels Broadcasting, Gospel Music Television and NuGospel Broadcasting.

Trinity Broadcasting Network, FamilyNet, INSP-The Inspiration Network and i-Lifetv are also located on that transponder, and those networks are available to members as part of previous agreements.

The NCTC originally reached a pact with OlympuSAT in 2002 for the “OlympuSAT I” transponder, which included its “Hispanic Pack” and “OlympuSAT I Digital” services.
