Cable television viewers in Dodge City have additional programming choices, thanks to a partnership between Dodge City Public Schools and Cox Communications, supported by the community and district business partners. An educational access channel (Channel 21) is available to viewers as part of any Cox Cable television subscription package and at no charge to the district.
The Legislation Behind the Channel
The "1984 Cable Franchise Policy and Communications Act" is a piece of legislation sponsored by Senator Barry Goldwater passed into law that allows monopolies on cable television in each community in exchange for 3 percent of all revenues to be granted to the communities themselves leading to the birth of modern day public access community television and what is called PEG or Public, Educational and Government (channel) TV.
Cox Communications is a partner with Unified School District 443, Dodge City Public Schools. Cox Communications does not program P.E.G. channel 21. For questions or comments regarding cable channel 21 in Dodge City, Kansas, please contact Yvonda Offerle at firstname.lastname@example.org
