The TV District has applied for and is receiving grant funding to buy and install new broadcast equipment and a taller and stronger tower. Some of this equipment is being manufactured overseas and will take a bit of time to reach us. The current worldwide supply chain is causing significant delays. We are working diligently to coordinate shipment schedules, delivery and installation, including the manpower to accompllish this very large task. Our current estimated date of completion is mid-October. We will update you all with progress reports when we have further information. Thank you for your patience and continued support!
TV Channels for $40 a Year!
This is by far the most affordable TV for Okanogan County residents. If you live in the District’s service area, you have access to 9 major network TV channels including 4 PBS channels, plus radio stations as well (see the Services page for a list.) All you need is a television and an inexpensive antenna - no monthly cable or satellite bills.
Who We Are
Television Reception District #1 of Okanogan County is a taxing district of Okanogan County, a governmental entity with the purpose of maintaining affordable television on public airwaves in our community. Our operations are funded by an excise tax assessed on properties in our service area. For 2018 the annual tax is $40, unchanged from the 2017 assessment. This pays for broadcasting site leases and the equipment, power, and staff needed to keep it all in operation.
Please follow the menu links above for more information.
The Board of Directors is diligently pursuing options to restore, sustain, and enhance the services provided to our region. As agreements are successfully negotiated, additional information will be publicly communicated. To help fund these efforts, your continued support is requested.It is natural to hesitate to pay for a service viewed as subpar; however, we are seeking your patience during this transitional period. Payment of your assessment may be received anytime throughout 2019 as progress continues strengthening and improving the service provided.
If you choose, exemption options are available. See the back side of the Assessment statement or the Exemption tab on the TV District 1website, tvdistrict1.org, for additional information.
Our board meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 4:00pm in the Okanogan County Child Development Association Conference Room located at 127 N Juniper, Omak.
Meetings are open to the public.
