Public Access TV Vs. Denver

Denver’s public access TV station is in a fight with the city’s government. “The Denver City Council and management at DCTV are butting heads over the latter’s budgetary habits. Like, spending too much. City funding for a public-access channel – $500,000 annually – was part of the deal. That contract ran out last year. To keep the channel on the air, the city fronted DCTV $115,000 for operating expenses and $150,000 for equipment. A divorce is imminent.”
