Public Access Programming Moving to Channel 20 on AMU Traditional Cable TV, Effective October 2, 2020
If you want to watch the Algona City Council on AMU Traditional Cable TV, you will have to tune to Channel 20. Effective today, October 2, 2020, Public Access Programming will move from Channel 4 to Channel 20.
The move is in anticipation of having more original Public Access programming in the near future. That programming includes meetings for city council, school board, board of supervisors, local sports and local events, and only affects AMU Traditional Cable TV.
AMU will continue to place advertisements for non-profit groups and events on channel 4. Information for non-profit ads can be emailed to CH4Ads@netamu.com.
“If AMU leaves Public Access programming on channel 4, advertisements for non-profit groups and events would not be seen as often,” said Bob Jennings, AMU Marketing Director. “Moving the programs to channel 20 accomplishes two goals – an increase availability of public access programs and allowing local non-profit groups to still advertise their events on channel 4.
The Algona High School Broadcast program is expected to develop special messaging to air between programming on Channel 20.
Again, the change of location for Public Access programming only affects AMU Traditional Cable TV. “AMU already provides separate channels for local non-profit advertising and public access programming on AMU Dynamic TV,” said Jennings, “Dynamic TV customers can watch Public Access programming on channel 918 and non-profit advertising on channel 919.”
