NRB NETWORK LETTER AGREEMENT
HISTORY Founded in 2005, NRB Network was launched with the goal of providing access to television for independent film producers and new entrants. Our mission is to provide educational and informational programming with a unique focus on the teaching, values, and a worldview reflective of the historic Christian faith. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, NRB Network does not have owners or ownership interest by any individuals or organizations. The Network was launched by the National Religious Broadcasters Association and we have two association members on our Board of Directors. The Network is currently carried as a public interest channel on DIRECTV and Sky Angel. All of the programming qualifies as public interest under FCC guidelines 47 CFR 25.701. Signal delivery is from Encompass Digital Media in Atlanta GA, on the AMC-IO satellite MPEG-4 standard definition NTSC compression and uplink using Scientific Atlanta encoding equipment. TARGET AUDIENCE Barna Research Group estimates that there are 38 million evangelical Christians who watch television on a regular basis, but only 2‐3 percent of this group watches Christian television with any regularity. Most of this group falls into the 26‐55 age demographic, are family households, educated, and concerned with the trends in media. This is NRB Network’s target audience. Our research shows the broader group has rejected traditional Christian television that is primarily teaching, church service, or direct ministry personality driven. They are looking for greater variety and higher quality that supports their worldview, but is more in line with what they see on PBS, Discovery, National Geographic, A&E, Travel Channel, etc. Box office successes such as the Passion of the Christ, The Chronicles of Narnia, Facing the Giants, FIREPROOF, and most recently The Blind Side show a hunger for quality faith-based movies. This was clearly evident when The Blind Side knocked the box office powerhouse Twilight sequel, New Moon, from its top spot just three weeks after it was released. PROGRAMMING NRB Network presents a wide variety of programming to meet viewer needs and desires. Our objective is to compete with PBS programming but from a Christian worldview. Program genres include: women’s daytime, kids and teens, family informational, public policy/social issues, nature/science, history/documentary/biography, music/arts and sports/outdoor. SATELLITE NRB Network originates from the Encompass Digital Media facility located in Atlanta Ga.
