The City of Oak Forest produces quality programming for residents via local cable operators, Comcast channel 19, Wide Open West (WOW) channel 6, and AT&T U-Verse channel 99. The CIC-TV and OFC-TV studio is located at City Hall.
Government access television is a resource of the city to address local municipal programming needs. The city uses this channel to cablecast City Council meetings, election programming, local emergency announcements, and other events and programs. View the monthly program guide or watch CIC-TV programs via Peg Central, a web media site that hosts and streams video on demand.
In the Cable Communications Act of 1984, congress established a provision to permit local authorities to develop requirements for public use of the local cable system. This provision enables communities to provide a voice for their residents and organizations.
To meet this objective, the city and local cable operators made Comcast channel 4, WOW channel 17, and AT&T U-Verse channel 99 available for the public to use on the cable system. Any individual or organization from the community can produce a television program and air it on the local public access channel.
