The Catholic TV network said it has signed an affiliation agreement with Comcast, the biggest U.S. cable operator.
The agreement gives the programmer an opportunity to seek system distribution, but the network already has carriage on Comcast cable systems in New England, its home territory.
"Every day, CatholicTV hears from viewers around the country who are anxious to benefit from the programming our network provides," Catholic TV director Father Robert Reed said in a release. "We are honored to provide Comcast with uplifting entertainment and compelling family programming that reflects the diversity of our nation."
Catholic TV has been in operation for more than 55 years, offering a broad spectrum of faith-based programming aimed at children, teens and adults. It has news, talk, entertainment, international event coverage and devotional series, as well as live Sunday Mass from the University of Notre Dame and a full slate of video on demand.
It also has a "CatholicTV" iPhone app and is offering both television programming and special sections of the Catholic TV Monthly magazine in 3D.
