UC Launches Its Own TV Station
With the launching of its new television station, the University of California's can share the research of its faculty and students with nearly 3 million potential viewers around the world.
UCTV will feature lectures, interviews, research symposia, distinguished speakers and artistic performances 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It's mission is to educate and enrich the lives of viewers.
Programs focus on topics -- such as science, technology, health, arts and humanities -- as well as individual campuses.
"In an era of 90-second news stories, there is a real need for in-depth coverage of ideas and issues that affect the lives of people everywhere," said UC President Richard Atkinson.
The station is available on EchoStar's Dish Network satellite television service on channel 9412. The programs are also broadcast live on the Internet at www.uctvonline.org. It will be available on cable stations in the near future.
