The Vatican Television Center (CTV) is the official point of contact for all matters concerning the television broadcasts from the Vatican. The origins of the telecasts go back to 1974 when the Pontifical Council for Social Communications was assigned the task of coordinating the worldwide broadcasts of papal ceremonies at Christmas and Easter, as well as for other special celebrations transmitted around the world. The telecasts are made available via a series of satellites so that television networks and outlets can receive and transmit the events to their own local and international audiences. The global satellite distribution has been made possible through the generosity of the Knights of Columbus. The links to the information below are provided as a resource for broadcasters and commentators.
