During the month of January, Cary TV 11, the Town’s official government access channel, completed one of its largest equipment upgrades in the station’s history. The projected replaced key production equipment that had outlasted its useful service life.
Viewers now have the ability to watch Cary TV 11 in high definition. Do note that due to limitations set forth by Time Warner Cable and AT&T, some viewers may not notice a difference in viewing the channel upon the completion of the project; viewers should check their television settings in order to determine the optimal viewing experience. All videos on the Town’s YouTube Channel will now be produced and uploaded in high definition.
The total amount budgeted for this project was $197,000 and was approved as part of the FY 17 budget.
Cary TV 11 offers around-the-clock programming to hose in western Wake County with time warner Cable (channel 11) or AT&T Uverse (channel 99). Programming includes live streaming and recablecast of all Town Council meetings and all Planning and Zoning Board meetings; Cary Matters, the Town Council’s regular program; and Bud TV, the featurette to complement the Town’s monthly utility newsletter. Viewers may also catch Wake County Board of Commissioners meetings and programming from NASA TV. Meetings and original programs are also available on the Town’s YouTube Channel.
