CATHOLICTV® NETWORK TO BROADCAST ALL PROGRAMS IN HIGH DEFINITION
Continuing in its mission of inspiring the next generation of U.S. Catholics, CatholicTV® Network is pleased to offer its entire slate of programming in HD beginning on Wednesday, October 13, 2010.
This announcement marks the third major technological advancement for CatholicTV network in the last month. First, the network launched iCatholic, social network community, nicknamed “Facebook for Catholics” by the media, that allows users to create profile pages, participate in forum discussions, upload photos and videos, and interact with members of the Catholic community from across the country.
Then CatholicTV Network rolled out a new digital magazine within iCatholic (www.catholic.com/magazine) that is available online as well as on iPhone and iPad apps.
Now CatholicTV continues to utilize technology to enhance the network and attract new viewers as the network goes full HD.
“Having the entire network available for HD viewing both on TV and on CatholicTV.com will continue to bring more people to our family-positive shows,” said Father Robert Reed, CatholicTV Network President.
With a wide array of shows such as “This is the Day,” an international newscast and interview program with guests from around the world, “WOW! The CatholicTV Challenge” for children, “House + Home in 3D,” one of the many offerings in 3D, CatholicTV continues to be an industry leader in original religion-based television.
“CatholicTV has always been at the forefront of the use of television for the spread of the Gospel,” said Reed. “Our faithful viewers deserve to watch our programming in the highest quality available.”
