INSP to Launch International Network


The Inspiration Networks will launch a new international-oriented network Jan. 1 targeted toward the pan-European region.

The Inspiration Network International -- which will initially launch on European-targeted transponder Hotbird 6, but will also gain carriage on News Corp.-owned satellite service British Sky Broadcasting Group plc in the second quarter of 2005 -- will feature INSP-produced entertainment shows, exclusive ministry programs and European ministry programs, network executives said.

“Our vision always has been global, and this is our first step in fulfilling the international scope of our corporate objectives,” INSP CEO David Cerullo said in a prepared statement.
