Watertown, MA (August 5, 2014) – During the live coverage of the 132nd Knights of Columbus Supreme Convention in Orlando, Florida, CatholicTV will debut version 2.0 of the iOS app. Father Robert Reed, president of the CatholicTV Network who will demo the app said "This is not a refresh; this is just plain fresh: the new iOS app for The CatholicTV Network. It's clean, it's simple, it's expansive and it's FREE! Download it today in the iTunes App Store." Android users can look forward to the launch of version 2.0 in the coming weeks.
