DATV is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that, since 1978, has given Dayton the "Freedom to Communicate" as a community forum that empowers all citizens to learn, create and express their ideas through electronic media.
As the original form of social media, DATV provides the training, equipment and facilities for local residents to create their very own non-commercial local cable TV programs. Last year alone DATV's 400 plus members created over 4,900 new local tv programs for and about Dayton.
DATV operates two cable access channels in the City of Dayton, Ohio on Time Warner Cable. DATV, is a public access channel seen on Time Warner channel 5 in Dayton, Riverside and Butler Twp. and Dayton Spiritual Television is a religious access channel seen regionally on Time Warner Digital Ch. 992.
DATV's office and studio will be closed to the public on Thursday, May 1st and Friday May 2nd so that we may host the Central States Region of the Alliance For Community Media Regional Conference and Trade Show in Dayton.
Producers should turn in their weekly programs before Wednesday at Noon. If you have equipment scheduled for use that weekend you make pick up your equipment on Wednesday or Saturday of that week. DATV will be operating on the regular Saturday schedule May 3rd.
We hope you will consider joining us for the Conference and learn about the latest trends in Community Media. Registration information may be found below.
