For Immediate Release






ATLANTA  March 4, 2024 – UP Entertainment, the leader in uplifting entertainment for passionate and diverse audiences across the leading cable, satellite and streaming platforms, is introducing a new bundling offer for viewers beginning in Q2. Subscribers will have access to UP Faith & Family and GaitherTV+ (home to the largest collection of Gospel and Country concerts and specials from the beloved Gaither Gospel Video Series) for $9.99 per month or $99 for the year. The bundle will be available to purchase on both the UP Faith & Family and the GaitherTV+ websites. Each service can still be accessed through its individual platform, but now consumers can choose the convenience of streamlined billing (single bill for both services) and significant savings versus buying each service separately. Free trials provide instant access through Apple, Android, and other major device platforms, and customers can modify or cancel their selected services at any time.


Later this year, UP Entertainment will further expand the bundle options to include a kids’ streaming service through a partnership with Minno. Minno is the leading producer of quality media for kids that sparks imagination and curiosity around God and the Bible.


“As the leading independent streamer in uplifting entertainment, serving over a million customers, we are delighted to give our viewers even more positive programming options to share with the whole family,” said Philip Manwaring, Head of Streaming, UP Entertainment. “While other streamers are raising prices and inserting ads, we’re thrilled to be able to partner with trusted brands like Gaither Music and Minno to provide quality, uplifting entertainment ad-free for an affordable price.”


“We had no idea when we began recording videos where mass media and communication would one day be,” stated three-time Gospel Music Hall of Famer and GRAMMY winner Bill Gaither.  “It is exciting to see our decades of performances and songs become available to folks far and wide through the work that UP Entertainment is doing. Their emphasis on uplifting, family-friendly entertainment compliments our mission to offer daily encouragement and eternal hope through Gospel music. We look forward to broadening what we do in partnership with UP Entertainment.”


“We at Minno are thrilled to partner with UP Entertainment to bring our faith-based children’s content into more homes,” said Erick Goss, Minno CEO and Co-founder. “Our mission has always been to support families’ spiritual journey by providing engaging, imaginative content that sparks curiosity about God and the Bible. Joining this bundle allows us to reach even more families, offering them a safe, enriching viewing experience that aligns with UP Entertainment’s commitment to uplifting, family-friendly programming. Together, we’re making it easier for parents to find content that entertains and fosters their children’s faith.”
