EWTN Global Catholic Network said it will become available to all U.S. affiliates in high definition beginning Dec. 8.

"We chose to launch HD in December so we could bring our viewers all the beautiful images of the Christmas season using the most advanced technology," EWTN CEO Michael P. Warsaw said in a statement. "We are the proud to say that we are the only Catholic television network available in this format."

Alabama-based EWTN, in its 28th year, says it is available in over 150 million television households in more than 140 countries and territories.
