We are committed to providing local programming which will increase opporitunities for community expression on issuse and topics that affect the lives of community members. To this end, Panda believes that the local community will play an active role in determining and developing programming for public and government access. Our mission is to provide the community with the technology and equipment to produce their own programming.
We also operate a public access channel, a resource which provides any area resident with air time, for any non commerical purpose, for free. All of these locally produced programs can be seen on Time Warner Cable Channel 23, or online at anytime at www.pandatv23.org/live_stream. Additionally, we maintain a community calendar, which keeps our residents informed of local events as well as events in the surrounding areas.
PANDATV 23 is a non-profit 501(c)(3) and follows the PEG (Public, Educational, and Government access) system to make available equipment, training, and televised air time on the local cable system so that members of PEG can produce thier own shows and broadcast them to an extensive audience.
