Henry TV14 Now Available on AT&T U-Verse

When Henry County first began broadcasting its government access channel on Charter channel 14 in 2007, the goal of the Board of Commissioners was to make government more accessible to citizens, and thereby encourage greater involvement in local government programs. 

Since that time, the county has continued to expand its reach and improve government transparency by making it possible to watch the Commission meetings and all other TV14 programming over the Internet in 2008, and just last year, converting the format of the online video to make it possible to watch the programming on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.

This week, Henry County announces that citizens will have yet another option to watch its programming:  AT&T U-Verse.  Beginning Wednesday, April 10, all residents and businesses who contract with AT&T for cable television service via its U-Verse system will be able to watch the government access channel by selecting “Government Education and Public Access” from the “Live TV” section of the Main Menu, by accessing the “Guide” and scrolling to Channel 99, or simply by entering “99” on the remote control and then scrolling to “Henry County”.

“As AT&T U-Verse continues to service more and more customers in our community, this gives us an opportunity to reach more citizens,” explained Julie Hoover-Ernst, Henry County Communications Director. “More importantly, it gives citizens a choice.  If they want to be able to watch TV14 programming, they are no longer limited to one provider or the Internet.”

The ability to expand Henry County’s reach to thousands of AT& T U-Verse customers was made possible through the purchase and installation of a CISCO encoder at a cost of about $7,200.  Per the state franchise agreement, there is no charge to Henry County to broadcast on either AT& T U-Verse or Charter. 

Henry TV14 offers a variety of programming, from Commission and Zoning Advisory Board meetings to the Update news program and Inside Out talk show, which highlight County news, initiatives and events, as well as special programs showcasing the services of County departments, such as the popular SilverTone exercise program and Garden Delights, a cooking and gardening show produced in partnership with the Henry County Cooperative Extension.
