Catholic cable TV starts in India


In September a new Catholic cable TV started broadcasting in the State of Meghalaya, in north-eastern India. As Fides learned, the channel is called "Don Bosco Media Network" (DBMN) and is managed by the local community of the Salesians of Don Bosco, and is at the service of the local Church.


The television channel started broadcasting with the slogan “The signs of the times”, after a year of preparation. The “Don Bosco Media Network” (DBMN) in Meghalaya, in fact, in September 2020 had begun its activities in the field of the apostolate through mass media “to provide hope to society and guarantee information and formation oriented to the Gospel”.

“Being able to open the television channel is a gift from God and is the fruit of the commitment of many Salesian missionaries and volunteers”, notes Fr. Michael Makri, director of the DBMN, expressing his joy.

“This work of evangelization will help the faithful to grow in fraternal communion, to form community, to give the Gospel of hope to others”, said Fr. Paul O. Lyngkot, Provincial Superior of the Salesians of Shillong.
