Hope TV is the official television channel of the Adventist church. It is available on DirecTV (Ch. 368) and streaming at hopetv.org or through your iPhone.
Note: To receive the Hope Channel on DirecTV you can use any receiver, but your dish must have 3 or 5 LNBFs (the electronic “eyes” on the arm in front of the dish). Hope Channel is not transmitted on the main DirecTV satellite, but is carried on a side satellite.
