Daystar TV is an American evangelical Christian-based religious television network that is owned by the Word of God Fellowship, founded by Marcus Lamb in 1993. Daystar is headquartered in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex in Bedford, Texas.
Daystar is available on broadcast and cable television in the United States and worldwide on direct broadcast satellite systems such as DirecTV and Dish Network, and as an unencrypted Free to Air satellite channel. The network is composed of two VHF and 37 UHF television stations, which each broadcast all or part of Daystar’s program lineup.
Daystar owns a number of television stations in the U.S., either directly or through its parent company, Word of God Fellowship, Inc. On June 13, 2013, Daystar entered into a strategic partnership with Canadian-based religious network Grace TV, in which the network’s non-Canadian content (constituting 65% of programming) would be supplied by Daystar.
Additionally, Daystar picked up You Are Loved, a program hosted by Grace TV’s CEO, Peter Youngren. The network ultimately re-branded as Daystar Canada. On September 24, 2014 Daystar started broadcasting in HD OTA on channel 2.1 in Dallas, Texas. Austin soon followed.
On April 27, 2015, Verizon FiOS currently carries the channel in HD. Daystar’s HD service is available in the UK via the Astra 2G satellite as part of the Sky and Freesat platforms and via terrestrial TV on the Freeview platform. In February 2015, the channel launched in Australia on subscription television provider Foxtel.

Daystar TV Controversies
In 2003, Daystar was investigated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), centering on allegations that Daystar sold air time on its non-commercial educational stations to for-profit groups. The investigation complicated Daystar’s US$21.5 million bid for KOCE-TV, a PBS station in Huntington Beach, California which at the time mainly served the suburban area of Orange County, and other license renewals.
After a lengthy process, Daystar and KOCE-TV eventually came to an agreement where Daystar leased a digital subchannel of KOCE, and broadcast network programming over KOCE-DT3 into Orange County and the Los Angeles area. This agreement remained in place as of 2013, with KOCE since becoming the flagship Los Angeles area member station of PBS in January 2011, replacing KCET after that station defected from the network.
On December 22, 2008, the FCC and Daystar entered into an agreement whereby Daystar would continue to utilize a multi-level review process for all content aired and would make additional good faith efforts to review all content received from external providers before broadcasting it on Daystar’s non-commercial educational stations.
Daystar agreed to make a voluntary contribution of $17,500 to the United States Department of Treasury. On March 13, 2012, the FCC questioned whether Daystar, through associated nonprofit companies, was qualified to purchase former PBS outlets KWBU-TV in Waco, Texas (which was renamed KDYW) and WMFE-TV in Orlando, Florida.
The WMFE deal was canceled two days later; the station was later resold and returned to PBS as WUCF-TV. On September 7, 2012, KDYW’s licensee, the Brazos Valley Broadcasting Foundation, informed the FCC that it would request the dismissal of the license assignment application and the cancellation of the KDYW license, with the cancellation becoming final on September 27.
Daystar TV Controversies
Daystar TV faced a controversy in Israel when it became the first foreign Christian network to be given a broadcast license by its government in 2006. The announcement drew criticism from Jewish leaders in both Israel and the United States, who believed the network aimed at converting Israeli Jews through its numerous Messianic Jewish programs.
In 2007, Israeli cable provider HOT announced it would drop Daystar from its lineup, stating that the decision was made after the company received complaints about Daystar’s content. Daystar filed a petition with the Israeli Supreme Court to hear the case, accusing HOT of religious discrimination. Two years later, HOT reversed its decision and resumed carrying Daystar.
Daystar TV South Africa
South Africa will begin to soar on the wings of truth, freedom, peace, and salvation that can only be found in the Gospel. A light has truly turned on in this nation, one that will shine for all the world to see. And as my friend and fellow evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke, would say, “From Cape Town to Cairo, Africa shall be saved!”
Marcus Lamb hope and prayer in the days ahead is that you would join me in believing for what I think will be a mighty move of God that sweeps across this land to bless the world. It’s so exciting when you consider what happens in families, communities, and nations when their hearts and lives are surrendered to Jesus. And because of that, I am absolutely certain that the best is yet to come for South Africa. Praise God!
