Free4Life’s positive inspirational TV programming offers daily hope and resolve for offenders and strengthens pro-social behaviors which prepare the inmate to successfully reintegrate with their communities, reconnect with their families and return to society as law-abiding citizens.  Learn more about The Word Network.

Using Ku band satellite technology, Free4Life offers premium urban inspirational TV programming at no cost to all local, state and federal correctional facilities across the nation to assist prison officials in their recidivism reduction strategy and help reduce infractions and violence that is widespread throughout institutions.

The program provides satellite reception equipment and professional installation, customized for each facility’s existing television distribution, with free technical support provided by our satellite partner, Glorystar Satellite Systems.  There are no subscription fees or extra charges ever!

This is welcome news to many state and government officials struggling to manage limited resources in already strained correctional budgets, many with severe cuts in rehabilitation and educational programs.

The channel is voluntarily viewed by the inmates integrated in a facility’s television line-up or may be installed in a chapel or day room. Multiple head-ends may be accommodated upon approval. For inmates who are in segregated areas who cannot attend chapel, our channel provides a way to receive spiritual encouragement they otherwise would not have access to.

“Free4Life comes at an opportune time as correctional departments continue to manage scarce resources in a climate of budget deficits and cuts. The positive faith-based TV programming, geared to the urban prison population, assists offenders in overcoming destructive attitudes and behaviors in an environment often plagued by violence and negativity.”
