TBN Namibia Back on the Air
On Friday 13 December 2013, TBN Namibia was forced to switch its signal off and stop transmitting via satellite due to lack of funds to pay the satellite feed. Viewers sent SMS and emails “crying” for the signal to come back on and those that could afford it gave extra donations. The extra donations were not able to pay the outstanding bills but did provide for new equipment to get the signal from the TBN offices to the NBC uplink centre which arrived and was installed.
On Monday 13 January 2014 the TBN Namibia signal was back on the air, however, ONLY on the NBC decoder platform. That means if you have a TV licence you can purchase a NBC decoder, otherwise you have to take out a new licence so that you can buy the NBC decoder. TV Licences are available via NBC and Nampost while the NBC decoder is obtainable through NBC offices and Mobipay outlets. Soon they will also be available at Nampost. The decoder costs N$ 199.00. If you have the NBC decoder you can watch us in; Windhoek, Rehoboth, Okahandja, Walvis Bay, Swakopmund and Oshakati area. The NBC decoder has currently 6 channels; NBC 1, NBC 2, NBC 3, TBN Namibia, One Africa and an advert channel of GoTV.
However, on 21 February 2014 the TBN signal came back on again as usual in Windhoek, Rehoboth and Okahandja. We are trusting God for the breakthrough of getting the signal back on the rest of the country as usual.
