Cooperative TV (CTV)
Since 1992 CTV has brought basic television service to the area - NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS and more. Over the past 20-plus years CTV has continued to grow and offer more digital options to its subscribers.
Today more than 30 channels are available at each tower location in Godahl, Frost and Jackson. Now most of these channels are broadcast in high-definition digital. These changes did not come without cost. For this reason CTV charges $8 a month. Even with this change, CTV is still the best and most economical option for local TV channels.
Going through a satellite provider costs more than $30 a month, plus an extra $6 for local channels. In addition, over-the-air is the best way to receive digital signals when it comes to clarity.

Paying subscribers make CTV possible. If you are not a subscriber, help make sure CTV continues to grow and provide low-cost, high-definition, basic TV service to the area.
