Odyssey Logo-No tagline

New York, NY (March 11, 2013)- Odyssey Networks has partnered with Salvation Army Vision Network to add SAVN.TV to their “Call on Faith” all-video mobile app. The app is available on portable devices including, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Android, Nook, Kindle Fire and any video-enabled phone. The new channel will feature video content from SAVN.TV’s website.

“Call on Faith,” offers a selection of over 200 videos (refreshed monthly) featuring inspirational stories, prayers, meditations, and uplifting advice on daily living via seventeen different topical channels. Six of these are programmed by Odyssey and the rest by a number of their member organizations: Church of Christ Scientist, CoExist, Baha’i’s of the United States, Atlanta Interfaith Broadcasters, Seventh-day Adventist Church, First Radio Parish Church of America, The Episcopal Church, Day 1/ Alliance for Christian Media, Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers and United Church of Christ. It is currently being offered as a free download via the major app stores.

Odyssey Networks is the nation’s largest multi-faith media organization dedicated to enriching spiritual life and promoting understanding among people of different beliefs and perspectives. Their chosen method is telling video stories of faith in action: stories that are changing the world for the better. Odyssey is comprised of over 150 faith groups and organizations.

The Salvation Army serves suffering humanity globally, meeting need at the point of need without discrimination. Advances in technology have challenged it to innovate and embrace the Internet for the delivery of these services: Compassion in Digital Action. The result is SAVN.TV, a call to social action, video driven website.
