What is NUTV?
NUTV operates as a campus-based community TV station and video production facility that challenges its volunteer members to become more media literate through participating in free, open-access video training and production. Members of the organization learn to harness the power and reach of the television medium through the content they produce. NUTV showcases in-house, collaborative and external independent TV and video content through its closed-circuit TV system, internet-based distribution network and cable programming. NUTV documents local history, builds community, creates access and fosters learning.
Established in 1983 and incorporated in 1991, NUTV is one of the oldest university-based television production societies in Canada. NUTV is part of the University of Calgary Tri-Media Alliance, comprising of print The Gauntlet, radio CJSW 90.9, and television (NUTV). The University of Calgary is unique in that it is the only Canadian university that houses three media operations on-campus.
