TORONTO, Thursday June 1, 2017 – Salt + Light Television, Canada’s Catholic network, is pleased to announce that it will be available in high definition to viewers across Canada on Sunday June 4, 2017. This announcement follows the announcement of Salt + Light’s recent move in 2016 to its state-of-the-art broadcast centre and studio in Toronto, where it will advance its production and programming capabilities and continue its growth in TV households and online across the world.
“We are thrilled to finally have enough support to make this important change and deliver on our viewers’ expectations of quality programming,” said Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, CEO of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation, the non-profit organization that operates the network. “People across Canada have been asking about what improvements we’re making. In addition to launching in HD, we will also have a new lineup of original, beautiful programming that will be announced over the coming few months. All our existing and new programs will also look so much better in HD.”
