Real Catholic TV has Launched! Go Check it Out!

UPDATE Aug, 31, 2008, at 2:06pm: The site has not yet officially launched. That happens tomorrow. I am told that the news and other things labeled, "Today", will indeed be a daily thing.

Real Catholic TV is launching tomorrow - an internet Catholic "television" station. Below, I'm embedding a few samples. (Please let me know if you have difficulty viewing them - they are not playing on my laptop, but worked for me at the originating site). Please be patient with anything not working right. You can test for bugs all you want, but the real test happens when something is released.

I just went through the registration for the free section in about 60 seconds and was in. There is a premium section. Incredible amount of money is being poured into the making of this site and it's exclusive programs, involving solid Catholic bishops, priests, religious, and lay people. Sign up for the premium section if you can because those exlusive programs look promising. You can watch free previews of some of these programs. I can't wait to see "The Other View", a program which looks like, "The View" on network television, a cleaned up version. The first taping of, The Other View, has just been completed.


In the free section are many choices, including "The Shepherd's Corner" - a section where short (3-8 minute) videotaped messages by bishops will be shared. I viewed all four including teachings from Archbishop Chaput of Denver, Bishop Choby of Nashville, and Bishop Vasa of Baker, Oregon. They appear to be exclusive videos. The one embedded below is that of Bishop Athanasius Schneider, ORC apparently taped during his recent visit to Metro Detroit. In it, he speaks of reverent reception of Holy Communion.





There is a news section anchored by Vic Faust, and two brief videos for "Today's Saint" and "Today's History". I watched each short clip. I'm wondering if the news will cycle daily or if it will be at certain intervals more like a news magazine that compiles things over time. We will find out soon. Either way, it is refreshing to see a news broadcast with issues of importance to faithful Catholics.



Michael Voris has his own section called, "Today's Vortex" in which he offers a commentary. In the August 28th, 2008 segment, he talks about Oprah Winfrey. The caption reads,


"...Michael talks about Oprah Winfrey and her new guru, the author of A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle"







Don't forget to visit the Real Catholic TV blog for updates and communications.

Support Real Catholic TV with your participation, by signing up for premium service if you can (the $10.00 is a real value, imho, if you are not cash-strapped), and by donating.

Diane - thank you SO MUCH FOR THIS!!!! We are all so excited about this - the staff is working all weekend to get the site ready for the launch.

We did not expect the site to be available ahead of the go-live date, so some things might not be working till Monday. Simon will soon have a "pardon our dust" splash screen up soon.

Thanks again - and please keep checking back, I'm sure we will have plenty of fuel for your blog! ;-)

(Oh - this may sound nit-picky, but this is not a Saint Michael's Media production, though many of the same people are involved - RealCatholic TV is totally separate - Saint Michael's Media is only a content provider/vendor. Not necessary to get into all that in your blog, just so you know.)

God Bless!!

Thanks for the clarification. Some of the same players - easy to mix up. I'll make an edit to my original post.
