TV station now in 15 new Dayton area burbs

An estimated 70,000 households in several Miami Valley communities can now watch Dayton Access Television.

Dan Suffoletto, marketing and promotions director for the non-profit public access station, said the station can now be seen in a list of communities that includes Englewood, Vandalia, Fairborn, Huber Heights, Trotwood, Xenia, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, all of Clark County and Harrison and Jefferson townships in Montgomery County.

He said DATV fills the void left when Time Warner operated public access station CAC went off the air a few weeks ago.

The station could already be seen in about 30,000 households that subscribe to Time Warner Cable.

The station’s programs will air on either either channel 5, 6, or 23.

No fee is involved.

Suffoletto said Time Warner, the City of Dayton and the impacted communities agreed to the change.

“It is just taking the signal we have and putting them on those channels,” he added.

Most shows that appear on the station are produced locally by DATV’s 400 members. Membership is $50 a year or $5 a month and includes classes and use of equipment.

“Now you can make a show and put it on DATV and it will be seen in those areas,” Suffoletto said.

There will be no impact on Dayton Spiritual Television seen on Time Warner channel 992. That station features shows from 75 churches throughout the Miami Valley.
