Pittsburgh, PA—PCTV is pleased to announce that effective July 1, 2016, any resident of Allegheny County will be eligible to use PCTV to create and air non-commercial television programming. Formerly, only residents of the City of Pittsburgh were allowed to use PCTV. Non-city residents who live in Allegheny County will pay higher fees than city residents but will have all the same privileges including usage of the studio, the ability to use PCTV cameras and editing facilities, and the opportunity to air programming on PCTV’s cable channel.
PCTV provides a platform for the community to create and distribute non-commercial television programming. PCTV offers low cost training, equipment, and facilities to community members and non-profits. Programs produced at PCTV are aired on Comcast 21 and Verizon 47 in Pittsburgh and on-line at http://www.pctv21.org.
PCTV completed a renovation of its facility at 1300 Western on Pittsburgh’s North Side in 2015. PCTV’s facilities include two television studios, a classroom, an edit lab, and an equipment room. In addition to the television studios, PCTV has portable cameras and editing computers available for community use.
