Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Moves His Network to Verizon
On March 1, 2018, the evangelical Christian lifestyle network LoveWorld USA TV, will soon become part of the Verizon FIOS TV lineup. The move to Verizon will not change any part of the original format of LoveWorld USA TV, as viewers will still be able to watch all of their favorite programs and more. The network is well-known to more than 10,000,000 Christian households across the United States. The network’s website offers live streaming for those not subscribed to Verizon FIOS cable television.
LoveWorld USA TV programs feature a variety of content for all ages including sermons from Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, Guillermo Maldonado, Oral Roberts; teachings from Johnathan Bernis, Gregory Dickow, Marilyn Hickey and many other programs that allow its viewers to spiritually connect to the Lord on a daily basis. Devoted viewers can also keep up with all of the latest developments on the KingsChat app, a social media platform where members can view media, post comments and receive notifications from their Believers’ LoveWorld, or BLW, for upcoming events. Subscribers of the Loveworld TV 2.0 app will still be able to live stream shows on Android and iOS devices after the move to Verizon is settled.
LoveWorld USA TV was launched by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and Pastor Benny Hinn in 2017. They occasionally air a special live program called Your LoveWorld that features both of the pastors providing their insights and teachings side by side. Prior to the network’s switch to Verizon, LoveWorld USA used to broadcast on a cable channel owned by the independent multimedia company, Olympusat, Inc. Back in 2003, Pastor Chris launched the first ever Christian satellite network based in Africa that aired content twenty-four hours a day worldwide. This platform inspired various other companies to develop their own Christian satellite stations that were based in South Africa, Nigeria, and the United Kingdom.
