Amidst Trends of Increasing Online TV Viewership CatholicTV Experiences Surge in Online Viewers
According to an April 2009 survey by the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project, the share of online adults who watch videos on video-sharing sites has nearly doubled since 2006. CatholicTV is experiencing a similar trend according to its website analytics which show that online viewership has become increasingly popular. Online viewership at CatholicTV.com from U.S site visitors has increased 20% in the last 6 months and as much 251% from site visitors from other countries such as Germany. In an effort to accommodate this increasing demand for online Catholic television programming, CatholicTV now offers over 700 full-length episodes of various Catholic shows in its archives with full-screen viewing available.
Below are some of the shows which are available at CatholicTV.com either in the archives or accessible via the live, streaming broadcast.
