IRONDALE, ALA. (CNA/EWTN News) - EWTN Global Catholic Network has introduced a new service allowing free on-demand access to a large library of its video content, with more than 12,000 programs available, and more being added regularly.

"EWTN On Demand has something for everyone," said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw in a statement on Friday.

 "There's nothing to fill out, no membership required, and no fees to pay. All you need is an Internet connection and you are good to go," said EWTN President Doug Keck.

"No one has more hours of Catholic programming on demand than EWTN," Keck said.

Available at www.ewtn.com/ondemand, the new on-demand service offers content including news, answers to common questions about faith, and book recommendations.

"From news shows like 'EWTN News Nightly,' 'The World Over,' and 'EWTN Pro-Life Weekly,' to classics like 'Mother Angelica Live,' 'Father Spitzer's Universe,' and 'Called to Communion,' EWTN On Demand has you covered!" Warsaw said.

Other available programs include 'EWTN Live,' 'Vaticano,' 'Life on the Rock,' 'Threshold of Hope,' and 'EWTN Bookmark.' More content will be added to the on-demand collection in the future, the network said.

EWTN Global Catholic Network was launched in 1981 by Mother Angelica of the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration. The largest religious media network in the world, it reaches more than 270 million television households in more than 145 countries and territories.

In addition to 11 television channels in multiple languages, EWTN platforms include radio services through shortwave and satellite radio, SIRIUS/XM, iHeart Radio, and over 500 AM & FM affiliates. EWTN publishes the National Catholic Register, operates a religious goods catalogue, and in 2015 formed EWTN Publishing in a joint venture with Sophia Institute Press. Catholic News Agency is also part of the EWTN family.
