The Liberty Channel, Liberty University’s in-house television network, is now available to an even wider audience.

The station is available in local cable packages with Comcast (Channel 10) and Shentel (Channel 12), as well as digitally on Channel 43.1 and 43.2. It can also be viewed nationally through Sky Angel IPTV (Channel 132), as well as anytime on a live web stream at www.libertychannel.com and on the new Liberty Today mobile app, a free download on iPhone, Android and Blackberry devices as well as iPad, Kindle and other leading tablet brands.

The Liberty Channel has something for everyone, from family-friendly movies every Saturday night, to live and pre-recorded Liberty Athletics events, church services, concerts, children’s programming and special Liberty events, including convocation. View the full schedule here.

The station was launched in 1991 as part of the Rev. Jerry Falwell’s vision to “impact this world for Christ by every means available.”

Sandy Wagner is general manager of The Liberty Channel.

“In this world of ever-changing technology, the sky is the limit for who you can reach,” said Sandy Wagner (’89), general manager of the Liberty Channel. “In accordance with Dr. Falwell's original vision, we are indeed able to impact the world through these mediums. As time goes on, we will continue to seek new and innovative ways to reach even more viewers.”

The station is available in high definition (HD) on Channel 43.1, and according to Wagner, Liberty is working with the local cable providers to switch to its HD signal.
