You may be surprised to learn that 95% of all Americans believe in God. That’s something Mother Angelica knew when she started the Eternal Word Television Network in 1981. With no television experience and just $200 in the bank, Mother Angelica and her nuns began broadcasting just four hours a day from their monastery garage in Irondale, Alabama.
Twenty-five years later, EWTN is now carried by all of the country’s leading cable and satellite providers 24 hours per day and has become a multimedia leader, transmitting in English and Spanish to hundreds of millions of people worldwide and drawing millions more to its AM/FM, shortwave and satellite radio networks, premier Internet site and publishing arm.
A Faithful Industry Partner
EWTN is grateful for the enthusiastic and growing support of the industry’s leaders over the last 25 years, which has helped it become an important part of channel lineups on all of the major cable and satellite providers in the United States and Canada. That fact is a testimony to the confidence you have placed in us and the value EWTN offers to your business.
Reaching An Important Demographic Group
EWTN is the cable industry’s key to reaching the country’s largest faith group. There are more than 70 million Catholics in the United States, three times the amount of the next-largest denomination.
No Subscriber and License Fees
EWTN’S programming is free to you of all license fees and carries the programming your subscribers are looking for: historic Vatican and church events; special holiday presentations for Christmas and Easter; live, interactive call-in talk shows; educational documentaries; entertaining shows for teens and children; inspiring music; exclusive news programs; and a live daily Mass.
A Prime Attraction for Your Hispanic Audience
EWTN Español connects with your Hispanic subscribers because the overwhelming majority of them are Catholic. And with 80% of its productions originating in Latin America, the interest in EWTN Español among U.S. Hispanics transcends national origin because of their shared Catholic faith.
Mother Angelica succeeded in America to reach a public numbered in the millions with her broadcasts, nourished entirely from a center of faith. It is a worthy contribution toward the moral renewal of our society.
