School TV channel

September 5th, 2013 by Alica

Alliance Communications is dedicating digital channel 226 to the Brandon Valley School District. The school will provide all content. Right now it’s just sports, but if the district gets the right equipment, things that happen in the Performing Arts Center could be broadcast too. And stuff like the school board meetings.

Will you watch the channel? What kinds of things would you like to see on it?

The high school could have a class in broadcasting, and those kids could produce their own shows, even. Do you think this would be a good idea?

What are your thoughts?

    I think its a great idea for those that cannot make it to the games, or, in the future, for the PAC events. Unfortunately, I do not have digital, so it does me no good.

    Same here. I do not have digital. However, if I did, I would be eager to have Performing Arts Center events available. The Brandon Valley Challenger story didn’t mention broadcasting school board meetings, but I would think that would be an important thing to air. It wouldn’t have to be live, though.

    It occurs to me that students could produce their own shows, too. I know they have done that in the past for the school website.

    School board meetings have been played on the Alliance local channel for years on basic channel 18 and digital channel 21. They air on Wednesday night after the Monday meeting at 8:00 pm.

    To #4: True enough. I wonder if they still will air on basic cable even after the school channel starts up in digital. I hope so.

    Yes, we plan to continue airing the school board meetings on the local channel, which is on basic cable channel 18 and digital cable channel 21.

    Amy, Thanks for posting the information. Often, the people who know the answers to questions posted on the blog do not post here themselves. I can research and find answers, but as an hourly employee, sometimes I just plain run out of time.

    Again, thank you for posting.

    I tuned in Friday night to watch the homecoming football game. I don’t care for the crowds that the homecoming game draws, so opted to watch it on tv. The sound was on prior to the game and I was able to listen to all the chatter going on in the press box which I felt was odd. The picture was very dark and it was hard to see the game. Then during the marching band half time show, they didn’t have the sound on at all and I would have enjoyed listening to the band. I hope the quality of the broadcasts improves.
