Catholic Courses

So now there is a Catholic version of The Great Courses, and it seems to be a more "orthodox" alternative to Now You Know Media, featuring authors like Regis Martin, Joseph Pearce, Fr. Alfred McBride, O. Praem., Anthony Esolen, and Benjamin Wiker.

Catholic multimedia companies... there is an article at AmCon about EWTN. Is it really the case that the company has no episcopal oversight? Why is the local ordinary allowed to prohibit ad orientem for televised Masses if he has no jurisdiction whatsoever? Or does it only pertain to liturgical matters? Even if it is beneficial for the cause of orthodoxy, the lack of episcopal supervision for an organization dedicated to teaching the faith is rather troubling, even if the organization is merely carrying out the duty incumbent upon all the faithful.
