SCCtv now broadcasts THREE television stations!

On December 4, SCCtv began providing the broadcasting and streaming services for City Colleges of Spokane's educational television station, CCStv. CCStv was at risk of losing their station due to financial issues.

SCCtv staff were able to engineer a solution using our existing equipment to help them save their channel and continue serving their community's educational programming needs. Their stations programming is now served from SCCtv. CCStv is the third television station operated by SCCtv, along with our own channel and Seattles public access channel, Seattle Community Media.

With this new solution possible, SCCtv has devised an inexpensive solution we hope to make available to other at-risk stations.
