Cebu Catholic Television Network (CCTN) is a broadcast television channel owned by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cebu and Fil-Products Group of Companies in the Philippines. The station's studios are located at the CCTN Broadcast Center, Cardinal Rosales Avenue, Cebu Business Park, Cebu City.[1] CCTN 47 now operates 24/7 for cable operators and through online webcast, and 18 to 19 hours on free-to-air UHF TV.

History[edit]

Cebu Catholic Television Network Channel 47 (CCTN) founded by its president, Nonito “Dodong” Limchua.[2][3][4] After his stint in the cable business he started family relationship programs that promote Gospel values and bring the Catholic Church message to the people. Since he and wife Diana are devout Catholics, they have been involved in Walking with Jesus Seminars. Together, they shared their vision with the Archbishop of Cebu, Ricardo Cardinal Vidal and he supported them in their desire for others to see the face of Christ through professional coverage of events, documentaries and issues concerning the Catholic Church.[5]

Just on its first three years since it was launched in 2002, CCTN gained popularity along Central Visayas and reached out its viewers to Eastern Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula and Northern Mindanao.[6]

Since it was launched, CCTN exists with various names. Started as CCTN on 2002, the station was rebranded as INTV in 2008 with the slogan Inform, Inspire, Interact.[7] Following the rebranding was the station's website at intv.com.ph.[1] Then in 2012, the network tries to bring back the CCTN name and rebranded as INTV powered by CCTN. In 2013, the network then removed the INTV name and rebranded as, CCTN 47. Their website was then moved to cctn47.com as their old website with the INTV brand was dissolved.

Today, CCTN reaches its broadcast to Metro Manila, Cavite, Sarangani, Agusan Del Norte, Misamis Occidental, and Zamboanga Sibugay with the help of the local cable providers.[8][9]
