Better Life Goes on the Air in Astoria

June 01, 2009 | Charley Romani

On March 26 Better Life Broadcasting Network turned on the switch for television broadcasting in the Astoria, Ore., area. The broadcast coverage extends north into Long Beach, Wash., and south to Seaside, Ore. The station can be viewed on UHF analog channel 42.

The initial Astoria broadcast will be a direct feed from 3ABN, but Better Life plans to add a direct feed from their broadcast facility in Grants Pass, Ore., once a fiber-optic link is completed. This will allow the Astoria station to receive additional local programming, including Oregon camp meetings and worship services.

The Astoria district churches will also benefit from the station’s “Community Calendar,” which informs viewers about local church events. An announcement by the church’s pastor will also air, inviting viewers to attend services.

The Astoria station marks the 16th over-the-air broadcast station Better Life owns and operates. Better Life is the largest Three Angel's Broadcasting Network affiliate in the world.
