WATERTOWN, MA (MetroCatholic) - CatholicTV Asks Catholics to Help Spread CatholicTVeverywhere

CatholicTV recently launched an effort calling on Catholics to help spread CatholicTV across the nation.

Catholicism is the largest religious denomination in the United States. Close to a quarter of the US population identifies themselves as Catholic. 52% of Pennsylvania residents are Catholic, 44% in Massachusetts, 37% in California, and 36% in New York (Source: Wikipedia).

Despite these large numbers, many Catholics have only one or at most two Catholic television channels to choose from in their local areas. CatholicTV is available to carriers free-of-charge.

CatholicTV is asking people to visit  and join its list of supporters. Names of supporters are used in a similar fashion as a petition, which will show cable and satellite providers the amount of support and demand for Catholic television programming. This in turn, should help CatholicTV to spread its programming to more cities.

CatholicTV recently started broadcasting on Charter in Massachusetts, in addition to Chattanooga (TN) on fiTV, and other areas as well. CatholicTV’s addition to Charter’s cable lineup was largely influenced by letters written by ordinary Catholics asking that CatholicTV be added to their local cable lineup.

CatholicTV has found these simple, grassroots efforts effective in the past. CatholicTV began broadcasting as the world’s first diocesan television station in January of 1955. Since then, it has relied on its viewers for funding and support.

CatholicTV is a nationally-broadcasted television network streaming a live feed 24 hours a day at Heeding Pope Benedict XVI’s call to greater utilize the power of television and new media, the CatholicTV Network features its cable TV station, Catholic web site, mobile apps and widget. Celebrate Mass online; pray The Rosary; enjoy programs on prayer, the saints, the Scriptures and the Catholic Church on America’s Catholic Television Network.

    I love Catholic TV and would love to see a network across the united states and the world for catholics. Internet, telephone, television, cellphone, computers, etc. I want to give back to this country and the catholic church for all the selfless unpaid time spent building institutions that cared for people. Hospitals, Schools, Churches, Orphanages, etc. I think it is time we rebuild instead of selling off. Use the property for catholic business owners. Help by promoting these new ventures by the media. I whole heartedly support your Network and all it’s content. I want to see more adoration time. I was not happy with the chaplet being cut to fit within a 20 minute segment. Let it go the full 1/2 hour. I also cannot stress this enough, if you plan on doing commercials, I will stop watching. If you want to promote catholic commercialism have a separate channel just for that. Thank you for promoting Catholic Identity. God bless you all. Lastly, I am out of work and would love to support your cause. I spent 20 years as a building system designer. If you have an engineering department that needs help, please let me know.
