For Immediate Release

CityView Now Channel 80.1 on Digital TVs

CityView, the City of Springfield’s government access channel, has been moved from channel 15.1 to channel 80.1 on digital televisions. This change was made by Mediacom. The City does not control the timing or channel location.

CityView is available in Mediacom’s basic tier of service. Subscribers who have a newer digital TV with a QAM tuner will find CityView on channel 80.1. If a channel scan does not pick up 80.1, viewers will need to find these channels and turn them on using the manual programming function of their TV.  For customers using a set-top box, CityView is available on channel 80, where it has been located for the past year.

Content from CityView is available online at www.springfieldmo.gov/cityview. City Council and Planning & Zoning Commission meetings can be streamed live from the City’s website. These and other programs can be viewed at any time in the CityView archive. Some CityView programming is also available on YouTube at www.youtube.com/springfieldcityview.
