My Take: I think this is absolutely wonderful news... as INSP is known for airing faith and family friendly programming, including television dramas and movies, we know we can always trust and depend on. I will look forward to hearing about their upcoming movie projects and sharing them here with all of you!

*Please share your thoughts on INSP - in the comments below!


  1. Good news for INSP!! I loved "Courageous", "Fireproof" and "Heart of Christmas" and they're all out on DVD that I've added to my never ending collection!

    1. I know what you mean, Linda, I certainly have an ever-growing collection of these wonderful faith-based family movies, too! And yet... I, too, can't wait to see more! I think all of us believers should pray for Gary Wheeler, his crew, and cast... And the message his next movie will convey!

  2. Congratulations INSP and Gary Wheeler! Do you know if they will create a Christmas Movie?

    1. I don't know if they will, yet... But I am hopeful!

      And.... Trust me, if I do hear, I will certainly let you know - ASAP!!!

  3. TV movie creation is certainly at an all time high. It's nice to see INSP doing it. I've noticed, they play movies usually only on Sunday. I'm wondering if that might change and they might do more on Saturday or throughout the week. Maybe Friday, too?

    1. Great question. You are right - INSP does usually reserve movie viewing for Sunday, which is the night UP & Hallmark Movies & Mysteries typically premiere their movies and Hallmark Ch. gives an encore of theirs. I guess we will have to wait and see. My guess is they will stick to doing a weekend premiere of their movie, too, just like other networks... But then again, FRIDAY might be a good option... that's the night Disney typically premieres theirs, but they come a lot less often than other channels.

      Guess we will have to wait and see! :)

  4. That's great to know. Thanks for sharing.


    1. You are welcome, Misty! I was so excited for INSP and all of us viewers who love good, wholesome, faith-based, family movies!

  5. Thank you Net for introducing me to INSP a long while back. You kept listing al these great movies ( at Christmas ) on INSP, so I had to hunt through my channels to find it and believe you me, I was thrilled to find I had this station. Now, I watch a lot of good old drama type shows, but I'm looking forward to hearing about these new movies. Congrats also to INSP, you are a great channel!

    1. I am so thrilled I was able to introduce you to INSP. Their programming is so welcoming to family viewers... I always feel safe and at home when I watch their channel... Safe in knowing all the content is decent, and I feel at home, watching beloved characters, I've grown up watching and knowing since childhood. I guess that's why their logo "Welcome Home" is so perfect... You really do feel like you're at home with family... And I'm glad to have you, Jessica, in the family, too! God bless you and all the INSP family!
