A first-of-its-kind Muslim-American television network launched a year ago has gone from being a premium pay channel to a basic-cable channel offering on several cable and satellite systems, broadening its reach from 10,000 to more than 1 million US homes. Bridges TV, featuring Muslim-American lifestyle and cultural programming, also has been approved by the Canadian Radio & Television Commission to start broadcasting in Canada. As a premium channel for $14.99 (€12.22) per month, virtually all Bridges TV subscribers were Arabs and Muslims, Hassan said, giving the sense the network was preaching to the choir rather than advancing its goal of bridging understanding of American and Muslim cultures.
