Making the World a Better Place For All of Us

our history… built on solid foundation

K-TV is a member of a global network of religious broadcasting services with offices based in Europe and the United States. Founded in 1999, in Gossau, Switzerland by Father Hans Buschor, K-TV was transferred to Patrick Gruhn as sole owner and CEO in April 2011 and incorporated as Kephas Stiftung gemeinnützige GmbH (Kephas Foundation non-profit LLC). The K in K-TV stands for Kephas: the Rock in biblical Greek. The apostle Peter, was called Kephas by Jesus as he was to be the rock upon which the Christian church was to be built. 

As the leading provider of German-speaking Catholic television broadcasting in Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland in terms of unique viewers and broadcasting coverage, K-TV’s broadcasting reach includes approximately 31M households (excluding internet viewers). Building on more than 20 years of experience, K-TV is ever evolving, developing new technology to capture, broadcast, and stream high quality Catholic content.
