Diocesan Telecommunications Corporation, producer of the LIVE weekly Television Broadcast of the Sunday Mass from Corpus Christi Cathedral, has begun streaming a live video feed, on the World Wide Web, in addition to its live telecast on KDF-TV in South Texas. According to Marty Wind, Executive Producer of the broadcast, a grant from the John G. and Marie Stella Kenedy Memorial Foundation has made possible the purchase of equipment which allows viewers from South Texas and around the world to watch the Cathedral Sunday Mass, LIVE on most Flash enabled desktop computers and most popular smart devices.
Those wishing to access the stream should point their browser to http://goccn.wpengine.com and click the LIVE VIDEO icon at the top of the Home page. The LIVE VIDEO page features a Flash Viewer as well as links to players for most Smart devices and tablets including iPhone, Android, Blackberry, VLC, and Flash.
The Web streaming capability is part of an overall 3 year upgrade to HDTV, which is being made possible in part by the financial support of the John G. and Marie Stella Kenedy Memorial Foundation. Planned completion of the HDTV conversion is scheduled for this time next year. Also assisting in the project is Christus Spohn Health System, which has supported a portion of the air-time costs of the over-the-air broadcast for more than 18 years. Christus Spohn will fund the ongoing operational costs of the streaming server lease.
The Cathedral Sunday TV Mass has served South Texans since 1986, and is carried on Cable Systems throughout the area on KDF-TV, with the audio portion of the broadcast being carried live on KLUX 89.5HD1 over the air, and ListenLive at KLUX.org.
