Idaho Public Television partners with local cities and universities to
provide even more educational resources for students and teachers around
the state on educational cable access channels. Our current partners include
Boise State University
and the University of Idaho.
In Boise, we provide educational programming for Boise’s cable education
channels—channel 19 for Cable One subscribers, and channel 39 for WBS/Sprint
wireless cable customers. In Moscow, we program the cable education channel;
channel 8 and in Lewiston, Idaho we program PEG Channel 13.
In combining the resources of IdahoPTV, Boise State University, and the
University of Idaho, we are able to offer cable viewers in Boise and Moscow
a richer variety of high quality educational programs than was available
before. In addition, these partnerships help prepare us for a digital
TV future. Digital technology will
give us the capability of multi-casting up to four regular program channels.
Partnering with Idaho’s universities will help ensure that quality programming
on a future DTV education channel will be available to both our cable
TV and our over-the-air DTV viewers.
IdahoPTV continues to upgrade its technology and pursue partnerships
with those Idaho colleges and universities necessary to bring similar
educational programming to other areas of the state. Stay tuned for
future announcements about new services in your area!
