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.

Helen Lee, Social Media Manager at CatholicTV, and project manager for 2.0 shared that: "CatholicTV's updated mobile app opens up the complete library of our robust, responsive website to the mobile user, while continuing to provide the convenience and simplicity of a curated media experience. We appreciate that mobile users sometimes have different needs and expectations than desktop users, and we hope version 2.0 exceeds those expectations." CatholicTV is grateful to our colleagues, David Grenier, Dave McKinley and the entire Oomph team for their careful and attentive work in making 2.0 a reality for our users.
