DATV is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that, since 1978, has given Dayton the "Freedom to Communicate." Our mission is to serve as a community forum that empowers all citizens to learn, create and express their ideas through electronic media.
As the original form of social media, DATV provides the training, equipment and facilities for local residents to create their very own non-commercial local cable TV programs. Last year alone DATV's 400 plus members created over 4,900 new local tv programs for and about Dayton.
DATV operates two cable access channels in the City of Dayton, Ohio on Time Warner Cable. DATV, is a public access channel seen on Time Warner channel 5 in Dayton, Riverside and Butler Twp. and on channel 6 or 23 in Dayton's northern suburbs. Dayton Spiritual Television is a religious access channel seen regionally on Time Warner Digital Ch. 992.
DATV will no longer have any SVHS or DV tape editing suites available after Oct. 5th.
