Irondale, Alabama, USA (EWTN) – EWTN, the Global Catholic Network, now has its television service on SKY Guide number 680. The availability of the Network on SKY’s direct-to-home satellite platform makes EWTN’s television programming accessible to more than 7.8 million SKY subscribers, representing a sizable leap in the number of EWTN viewers in the United Kingdom and Ireland who already receive the EWTN television service. It also completes EWTN’s presence on digital satellite, where the Network’s radio service has already been on SKY Guide 897 for some years.
SKY subscribers now have access to the Network’s varied offering of Catholic cultural and educational programming, spiritual conferences, wholesome family entertainment, a Daily live Mass and other devotionals, as well as exclusive and complete live coverage of Vatican and papal events, including the weekly audience of Pope Benedict XVI.
