By Mini Swamy, TMCnet Contributor
INSP, a 24 hour-a-day network available to more than 70 million U.S. households via cable and satellite television, has worked extremely hard to build a strong relationship with Comcast (News - Alert), regarded as one of the world’s leading media, entertainment and communications companies.
Building on that relationship, INSP, one of the fastest growing networks , is launching in Comcast's Heartland Region and will benefit Greater Indiana and Michigan. Dale S. Ardizzone, chief operating officer at The Inspiration Networks made an announcement to this effect.
INSP, which claims to have experienced 500 percent growth ratings in the last two years with new launches in 2012 alone having already exceeded five million, can now be seen on channel 298 in Indiana and on channel 391 in Michigan. It stated that it continues to gain momentum among affiliates.
"The launch of INSP offers Comcast subscribers more than 95 hours a week of our award-winning family-friendly entertainment," added Ardizzone.
INSP believes in using the medium of television to equip, empower, and entertain and according to Ardizzone, was a standard bearer of wholesome, family-values programming that was approved even by the Parents Television Council. He was excited that “viewers in the Heartland region will now be a part of our fiercely loyal audience.”
“The addition of these new households demonstrates how valuable INSP is becoming, and the growing interest in our distinctive content throughout the country," stated Ardizzone, while commenting on the launch of INSP in the Heartland region.
INSP is available in more than 73 million households across the U.S. via cable and DBS and has been awarded the prestigious “Seal of Approval” from the Parents Television Council. Ardizzone regarded the honor as a strong endorsement for INSP's new programming strategy and recognition of the impact that INSP is having on families in America.
