Channel Descriptions


Government Access Channel 75/39

Rye Television works with the City Departments and the City Council to produce programs about City government and issues facing our community. These programs are cablecast on channel 75/39.

Channel 75/39 cablecasts LIVE "gavel to gavel" coverage of the City Council meetings, which are then rebroadcast at 11am the next day. RTV 75/39 is also currently running "Eye On Rye," the official program of the Rye City Council, five times per day. When not airing government access, Channel 75/39 runs a “Community Billboard” with a listing of government, community, and not-for-profit organization messages and events.


Community Access Channel 76/33

Rye Television provides access to the cable system by the community. All programs presented for cablecast must be submitted and signed for by a City of Rye resident, not-for-profit organization, or an employee of a legitimate business within the City limits. RTV is cable casting series programs and an assortment of one-time community events and programs, including Rye Neck School District programming on Tuesdays.


Educational Access Channel 77/40

The Rye City School District produces its own programming for cablecast on Channel 77/40. The District employs one full-time media coordinator/teacher to produce district programming. In addition, the City of Rye and the Rye City School District co-operate a television production and editing facility at Rye High School.


Community Billboard

RTV operates a “Community Billboard” where local non-profit organizations may publicize their services or any upcoming event. This service is also used by the City to post a schedule of City of Rye meetings, events, and government information. The Billboard is updated on a regular basis.
