Since its establishment in 1996, Shalom TV has successfully reached its original vision to become the fist Bulgarian TV network. Today a television studio is producing a variety of weekly Christian programs with the participation of evangelical ministers and churches from around the country. The format of each program is much similar to a church service including worship, Biblical teaching prayer modules. Each broadcast is designed to reach unchurched and unbelievers with the message of salvation.
Although neither government regulations nor private television have been very supportive of Shalom TV’s growth, today the network is using alternative methods like cable channels and internet broadcasting to promote Christian values, educate Bulgarians of the truths of the Bible and bring to a realization a dynamic vision of hope and restoration.Today, the network operates in 7 large Bulgarian cities with Christian programs broadcasted around the clock. In the beginning of February, Shalom TV was finally able to sign a contract with a TV station in the capital Sofia and begun broadcasting immediately. The priority of this project is understood since the 2.5 million people live in the capital’s area and are becoming potential viewers of Shalom TV’s Christian shows. A much larger audience is likely probable, since the TV station from the capital Sofia is retranslated and broadcasted by a large number of local TV station and cable networks around the country.
