About TV Maria
The Roman Catholic Church recognizes the importance of keeping up with the times to reach out to a greater number of people. And TV Maria is its means to cater to a Filipino audience who are hungry for God’s Word through television as well as through various alternatives such as the Internet and the cellphone.
TV Maria Foundation Philippines, Incorporated — or simply known as TV Maria — is a non-profit, non-stock religious organization of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines through the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila. Its work mainly involves evangelizing the Catholic faith through television and internet broadcasting, plus other forms of modern communication. It promotes not only the importance of communication and information in building a nation but also the importance of interweaving these with Catholic Filipino values.
To date, TV Maria is the only Filipino Catholic channel here in the Philippines, airing programs with moral, insightful, and inspirational content in genres ranging from news and special features, to documentaries and short dramas, to shows for children and the youth and MTVs. The programs in TV Maria come from in-house productions and footages sent in by contributors such as Jesuit Communications (or JesCom) and the Family Rosary Crusade (or FRC).
TV Maria airs its programs on Dream Satellite’s Channel 12, Sky Cable’s Channel 160, and Global Destiny’s Channel 94.
