Time-Warner Becomes Public Access TV Provider

 
Oct. 1 marks the switch to T-W Cable from Edu-Cable

Ch. 12 will be available to 17 local governments for non-commercial programs

Info on playback, tape formats, etc. included in article

SCATS ~~ This is a sad day! Govt in Greece just became much more "closed" with this switch. We've all lost more freedom to openly participate, since the services now offered are not equivalent to Edu-Cable's.

There goes the chance for the general public to see what really goes on in the Town Board and School Board meetings. Not everyone can attend in person and this was an excellent way to keep tabs.

So much for open government. This is what the communists do when they don't want their people to know what they are doing. We are sinking further and further into the abyss.

Community programming will continue to be run on WGCE LPTV tv channel 6.

Help us and support independent community tv.

I thought Melca-Voight was on the cable board. Why did she let this happen? Is this yet another example of how ineffective she will continue to be if she is elected to sit and cash checks with "Do Nothing Dick" Beebee?

Democrats - another word for failure,

How do we connect to that? I have satellite so I couldn't get your channel but wanted to. Have friends on cable and they copied when I asked.

To 7:47PM ~~ I'm hoping we'll have some extra info soon. He did mention in an email that Ch 6 is analog, does that help?

BLOG Administration rejected publishing for taunting/bullying. Some of you folks really need to grow up and set a decent example for your children.

Am I wrong to think that analog tv is totally gone now? I hope Caterino clears this up. I'm confused now.

you don't need brian to clear this up.

The FCC mandated switch to digital applies only to full power broadcast stations. It does not yet apply to Low Power.

For example I believe that Channel 26/40 which is 18 on the cable is still broadcasting in analog.
That is also an Low Power station.

There are several low power stations on the spectrum here,

I really enjoy watching Democracy Now with Amy Goodman. it is one of the few sources of alternative news on the air. Now it is off the air.

Talk about censorship.
