OCTV Launches New Website, Viewing Options Expanded and Enhanced
Orangeburg Consolidated School District Five (OCSD5) and the County of Orangeburg have partnered to create a new website that brings our local cable television signal and our library of video programming to anyone with an Internet connection. The address for the new Orangeburg County Television (OCTV) website is: www.orangeburgcountytv.com (click on image above). Until now, access to the OCTV signal was limited to local subscribers of the Time Warner Cable (TWC) system. While the television signal can still be viewed on TWC Channel 12 or Channel 78.10 for viewers with a QAM-enabled television, the new website makes OCTV available to everyone. Visitors to the website have the ability to view the live signal that is being broadcast on OCTV or select from any of the items in the video library for “on-demand” viewing. Check the website frequently as new video content is being added every week.
