For the First Time Vatican Will Use Domestic Satellite Distribution for Good Friday and Easter Telecasts

The USCCB reports:

For the first time, the Vatican will be adding a U.S. domestic satellite distribution capacity for the two seasonal broadcasts of the Way of the Cross at the Colosseum on Good Friday (April 10) and the Easter Sunday Mass (April 12), immediately followed by Pope Benedict’s Message and Blessing “Urbi et Orbi” (to the city and to the world).

This new coverage will allow much easier access for television networks and outlets in the United States to the satellite signal, which they can relay to their own audiences. The Pontifical Council for Social Communications will offer this service through Eurovision’s World Feed distribution. The telecasts are free of charge for all broadcasters.
