Add EWTN to Comcast Cable basic cable service

TO: Mr. Steve Burke, President Comcast Corporation Mr. David L. Cohen, Executive Vice President, Comcast Corporation We, the undersigned, respectfully request Comcast Cable to add EWTN Global Catholic Network to their basic cable channel lineup. Although Comcast offers Christian programming, the channels offered cater to a more Protestant-Christian audience and do not satisfy the needs of the Catholic-Christian Community. Satellite dish companies offer EWTN programming. However, Comcast is the largest cable company in the United States, serving approximately 21.3 million cable subscribers and does not offer EWTN. EWTN Global Catholic Network, in its 22nd year, is available in more than 81 million television households in 107 countries. With its worldwide short-wave radio station, television services, satellite-delivered AM & FM radio network and publishing arm, EWTN is the largest religious media organization in the world. EWTN’s programming offers quality Catholic-Christian programs for all members of the family, especially children and teenagers. Therefore, we ask Comcast to add EWTN to their basic cable channel lineup in an effort to meet the needs of the over 69,000 Catholics in the Middle Tennessee viewing area. (Based upon demographic information provided by the Diocese of Nashville) A timely response to this request is appreciated. We look forward to seeing EWTN on our cable soon. Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely,


Catholic Community of Middle Tennessee


  • Gilbert Paul Siegmund Should EWTN go off of any cable or satellite provider, I will encourage all I know to completely disengage from that cable or satellite provider--and I will also do the same immediately. I know many who subscribe to time warner cable just to get EWTN. EWTN, Eternal Television Network is the primary reason I signed my mother and myself--two different residences onto Time Warner Cable.
