Our viewers are loyal and passionate, and we are also pleased that many look to our network as a standard bearer for wholesome, family-values programming. I am excited that viewers in the Heartland region will now be a part of our fiercely loyal audience, and will see why the Parents Television Council™ (PTC) awarded INSP their coveted 'seal of approval.'"
"I also am proud of the work of our Worldwide Distribution team. SVP Mark Kang and his entire team have worked extremely hard to build a strong relationship with Comcast. The addition of these new households demonstrates how valuable INSP is becoming, and the growing interest in our distinctive content throughout the country."
