NET TV, a Catholic television station headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, announced availability expansion on Verizon Fios. NET TV’s original Catholic programming is now available on Channel 48 in the New York metropolitan area and beyond.
“This partnership with Verizon allows us to provide a new home to New York Catholics over at Channel 48,” said Monsignor Kieran Harrington, Chairman of DeSales Media Group, parent company of NET TV. “We are thankful that our distribution partners recognize the importance of making Catholic programming available to all, as we strive to do our very best to help introduce Christ to today’s society,” he added.
With this expansion, NET TV now reaches beyond New York City’s five boroughs to include Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Putnam and Dutchess counties, all of Long Island, and southern Connecticut including Greenwich.
The announcement comes as NET TV gears up to provide comprehensive coverage of Pope Francis’ first Apostolic Journey of 2016. From Friday, February 12, through Wednesday, February 17, NET TV will report on the Pontiff’s steps throughout Mexico with live coverage from reporters in the field following Pope Francis and with commentary from the channel’s studios in Brooklyn, New York.
