Cable TV is Dying!

Being a PEG channel is becoming harder and harder. Cable TV is decreasing vastly everyday as more people move to new streaming platforms.

Is LocalBTV free for PEG channels? If so, how does Didja make money?

Yes, LocalBTV is totally free for PEG channels. We make money by inserting ads on for-profit TV channels.  We bring on Community Video (PEGs, High School channels and more) on the system free of charge because we believe this adds great depth and color to our channel line-up.  

Do you run ads? We work under the borough, so we can't have ads.

Advertising is not required, but should a community organization (such as a high school) wish to have advertising or sponsorships, LocalBTV takes a share of that new found revenue to pay for expenses. 70% of ad/sponsorship revenue goes to the community video organization and so LocalBTV becomes a source of funding to schools that helps fund this and other programs.

Where is the company located?

We're based in Silicon Valley and have been in business for over 5 years.

How is our station listed in your app? How is this beneficial to our station?

The LocalBTV app has created a "Community" section to contain PEG and High School channels. This ensures it's easy to find your channel in the context of other PEG channels and community orgs.
