What is Alamance TV?
Alamance TV is a service provided to you by Alamance County in Cooperation with Time-Warner Cable to provide you with programming on our local cable public access channel. We also provide access to video material developed by Alamance County for public use through our website here at Alamance-NC.com.
What sort of programming?
Our most popular materials are meetings of the Alamance County Commissioners. However, we also provide educational videos about special events, emergency planning, and local services provided by Alamance County. We also have a limited collection of sports videos provided by our Recreation Department. We will be producing more informational and educational videos over time, and are working to expand other elements of our collection.
UPDATED April 20, 2009 - When can I watch Alamance TV?
You can watch our weekly broadcasts on Time-Warner Cable's local Public Access Channel on Wednesdays, beginning at 10 PM. In most of Alamance County, this is cable channel 5. For Time-Warner Customers whose service is based out of Mebane, this is cable channel 10. You can also watch any of our videos here on the county's website at any time.
UPDATED April 20, 2009 - When can I watch the County Commissioners' Meeting on TV?
The County Commissioners meeting broadcasts are scheduled for the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 10:00 PM. If we have no other material for broadcast on the other Fridays, Time-Warner will rebroadcast the most recent commissioners' meeting on those dates.
I receive television service through antenna or satellite. Can I watch the Commissioners Meetings?
You can watch the meetings through our website, or by attending in person. We do not broadcast the meetings over an antenna or satellite signal.
Will the upcoming conversion to digital signals affect the broadcast of the meetings or my ability to receive it?
Can I get a DVD or VHS copy of something I've seen on Alamance TV?
You may purchase DVD copies of most of our videos for $1 by visiting the front desk of the county office building at 124 W. Elm St. in Graham. If the DVD is not available at the front desk, you may put in a request for a copy, and we will get you one as soon as resources are available.
We do not have VHS copies of any materials available, however, there are companies who will convert DVDs to VHS cassettes for you for a fee. Please check your local phone book or the Internet for more information.
