Catholic Television of San Antonio to begin partnership with CatholicTV Network Nov. 30

For 35 years, Catholic Television of San Antonio (CTSA) has provided a vital connection for so many to the church and Jesus Christ by producing and providing quality local programming that helps people come alive in their faith.

Our broadcast partner for many years has been the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). In San Antonio, on CTSA’s cable provider, Time Warner Cable Network, EWTN is available in English and Spanish as well on the digital tier. EWTN can also be found in the archdiocese on AT&T U-verse TV, through Grande Communications, on DIRECTV, and the DISH Network.

To increase the availability of Catholic media offerings in south Texas in response to the new evangelization, CTSA will begin to broadcast programming from the CatholicTV Network beginning Nov. 30, the beginning of Advent and at the cusp of the start of the Jubilee Year of Mercy. CatholicTV Network and EWTN complement each other in service to the church. These are two great resources for San Antonio.

CatholicTV Network broadcasts live Mass daily, as well as educational and inspirational programming. These include live talk shows and devotional offerings such as the Holy Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet. The 55-year-old CatholicTV Network also broadcasts programming and special coverage from Vatican Television and live coverage of ordinations and installations of diocesan and archdiocesan bishops, in addition to special Catholic events around the world.

We know many viewers enjoy the programming available on EWTN. The network is available on numerous providers in the San Antonio area. This includes:

  • Time Warner Cable – San Antonio – Digital – Channel 460 and in Spanish on Channel 945
  • AT&T U-verse TV -- Channel 562 and in Spanish on Channel 3007
  • Grande Communications – San Antonio – Digital – Channel 191
  • C-Band Satellite – Channel G1-11
  • DIRECTV San Antonio – Channel 370
  • DIRECTV – Channel 370
  • DISH Network – Channel 261
  • DISH San Antonio – Channel 261
  • And in San Marcos (and parts of the archdiocese) on Grande Communications – Channel 191

More information regarding this transition in programming is available through Today’s Catholic newspaper, as well as through social media, specifically Facebook and Twitter.
