A message to Salt + Light TV subscribers in Canada

August 31, 2017
Dear Subscribers and Friends of Salt and Light Television,
During the morning of Tuesday, August 29th, an accident at a construction site in Toronto resulted in the fiber that carries the Salt + Light TV signal to millions of TV households in Canada being severed, effectively taking Salt and Light TV channel off air. The result of this construction accident was the interruption of broadcast of Salt and Light Television and other channels and networks on several major cable carriers. For this reason you have been experiencing a black screen on the Salt and Light Television channel in various parts of the country. Millions of households have been affected by this accident. Many of you have called or written us over the past 36 hours.
We take our commitment very seriously to provide regular Catholic programming and we were disheartened to learn that, for the first time in almost 15 years, our signal was taken down, and worse, that it was completely out of our control.
I would like to assure our viewers and supporters that we worked very closely with technology companies in Toronto to restore the primary fiber feed to many cable and IPTV companies across Canada. It was our single highest priority. I am now pleased to report that our service has been restored.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Sincerely,
Rev. Thomas Rosica, CSB
Chief Executive Officer
Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation
