GTV8 is the City of Wilmington’s government access cable channel, available to subscribers of basic cable on the TimeWarner system in New Hanover County.
It is a section of the Communications Division of the City Manager’s Office, located in City Hall, 102 North 3rd street, in Wilmington.
A complete schedule for GTV8 can be found on the city’s Web site here. “Currently, that’s the best way to do it because it’s constantly changing,” said Dylan Lee, station manager.
Some of the main programing, such as city council meetings are shown at regular times.
City Council meetings are broadcast live and replayed at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. the Wednesday and Thursday and Friday following the meeting. The meeting is also replayed at 11:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, the week following the meeting. Planning Commission meetings are broadcast live and replayed at about 10:05 a.m. and 8:05 p.m. the Saturday and Sunday following the meeting.
This Week from City Hall is produced the Friday after every City Council meeting. Host Dylan Lee reviews items of interest from the week’s meeting, highlights other city activities and previews upcoming events. This program airs twice daily on GTV8 at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. until the next Council meeting.
Everything that runs on TVG8 can also be streamed from the Web site above.
