The Inspiration Networks said its flagship network, INSP, has been added throughout Comcast's Freedom Region serving greater Philadelphia and New Jersey. INSP is now offered on channel 295 of the Xfinity TV lineup.
The South Carolina-based programmer in February was launched by Comcast in the Chicago market, Mark Kang, SVP of worldwide distribution for The Inspiration Networks, noted. The Freedom Region launch adds some 2.1 million subscribers to INSP's subscriber roster that now tops 72 million via cable, satellite and telco providers.
"With a nearly 400% ratings increase over the past 18 months, INSP continues to resonate with those who desire programming that celebrate time-honored values," Kang said in a release. "Our viewers depend on us to provide content that can be watched by the whole family and have rewarded our brand of ‘lunge-free TV' by making INSP a top 40 network for average length viewed, and #2 in primetime ratings of independent networks."
