The Catholic broadcaster Eternal Word Television Network has announced that the channel will be available in High Definition (HD) format for all U.S. affiliates beginning on December 8.
“The Faith never looked so good!” an EWTN press release said.
“EWTN is the only Catholic television network available in this format,” EWTN President and CEO Michael P. Warsaw said. “We chose to launch HD in December so we could bring our viewers all the beautiful images of the Christmas season using the most advanced technology.
Warsaw said that the HD launch date of Dec. 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, was chosen to honor the Virgin Mary who has “conveyed so many blessings upon this Network.”
EWTN Global Catholic Network has been in operation for 28 years. It is available in over 150 million households in more than 140 countries and territories. With AM and FM radio networks, a worldwide short-wave radio station, an internet website and a publishing arm, it claims to be the largest religious media network in the world.
