After a bunch of maintenance and a few missed airing, the HCAM staff is happy to report that HCAM-TV is back in full working order. We apologize to anyone who tuned in expecting to see something that wasn’t airing on our Public Access Channel (Comcast 97, Verizon 31) last weekend (November 15th-November 18th). Unfortunately a technical glitch caused a major issue with our playback server (pictured in the left rack) and this required immediate maintenance.
A silver lining of the issue is that some extra programming made it to our YouTube page so you could all tune in. That’s of course still online, so feel free to tune in for your local programming online or on television. Thanks for your patience!
