LOUISVILLE, Ky.--The American Christian Television System (ACTS) has 
reached agreement with the Faith & Values Channel (F&V) on a three-year 
deal that will keep ACTS programming on F&V. 
     A joint statement issued by officials of both companies declared that 
"both parties believe the arrangement helps the channel fulfill its purpose 
of providing interfaith and evangelical programming with a broad viewer 
appeal to the American public." 
     ACTS programs have been aired on F&V since 1992, when ACTS, owned and 
operated by the Radio and Television Commission of the Southern Baptist 
Convention, signed a three-year joint programming arrangement with VISN, a 
consortium of 64 Protestant, Jewish, Catholic and Eastern Orthodox faith 
groups, including the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). 
     F&V prohibits on-air fund solicitation, proselytizing and maligning of 
other faiths.  It is currently available via cable in 24.1 million 
households.  Additionally, the channel became available via satellite Oct. 
1 on channel 83 of PRIMESTAR satellite television service.
