A: TV ETC (The Vancouver Educational Telecommunications Consortium) has been the designated educational access provider since 1979, providing local educational programming in Clark County, Washington.

TV ETC is a non-profit organization housed at Educational Service District 112 in Vancouver, Washington.

Q: What schools participate in TV ETC programming?

A: There are nine Clark County schools who are current members of TV ETC. If your school would like to join TV ETC, please contact us, 360.952.3642 for more information. Battle Ground School District, Evergreen Public Schools and Vancouver Public Schools each produce programming on a regular basis for the TV ETC channels.

Q: Why are some events covered and not others?

A: The individual school districts decide which events will be covered based on resources and availability. In the case of Battle Ground Public Schools, sports events are regularly covered by video production students at Battle Ground High School who feature games from their high school volunteering countless hours setting up the equipment and taping the games. Vancouver Public Schools and Evergreen Public Schools both have a more district-wide approach covering games across all their high schools.

Q: Can I submit a message to appear on the channels about my school event?

A: Participating TV ETC member school districts submit the messages you see on the channels between regular programming. These messages are collected by the school district public information office. Please contact your school district’s public information department.

A:  CAS is a non-profit service designed to inspire new audiences by showcasing video clips of the arts. TV ETC transmits this for our viewer’s enjoyment and education.  Visit their website for more information.

Q: I am having problems with my cable, can you help?

A: If you are having problems with all your channels such as reception or a billing issue, please call Comcast at 1-800-COMCAST.
