It's no secret we want your eyes watching our network. If we can entertain you and interest you then we can also be your source for local information about the community.
We Must Earn Your Time
With the huge amount of entertainment options we must offer unique programming so that you will spend time - your time - watching our network. We can't produce live programming costing multi-million dollars.
So we constantly try to bring you programs that are entertaining, interesting, informative and just plain fun to watch. That's why we have All Aboard trains and classic westerns and kids who cook. It is also why we constantly look for new ideas like NASA productions - produce some shows ourselves and take advantage of our access to fire and police department events.
Quality programming can be an expensive proposition unless we search our peers throughout the United States and share public domain programs.
As a public broadcasting channel we have access to programming at other public broadcast stations or networks. Although there are hundreds of available options, we select only programs that meet our community standards for content and are of good quality. Even some program titles we select have episodes that we don't think meet our standards and we reject them, while accepting others from the same producers.
A wide variety of programs are available as public domain material. Some examples are NASA videos, Federal Government Agency productions and more than 1,000 programs that once appeared on television in the 1950s and 1960s that have been designated as in public domain.
We search far and wide for classic programs, and free programming either in public domain or available to our network under Media content availability. One example of content we access because we are a media entity is excellent materials from the United Nations.
