The City's TV Station

AuroraTV was founded in 1982 as a municipal television station for the city of Aurora, Colorado and is part of the city's Communications Department. It has received numerous regional and national awards over the years in recognition of programming excellence. As a municipal television, or government access station, AuroraTV produces programming on the city government’s behalf that serves specific priorities and community needs. In Aurora, these priorities include broadcasting and live-streaming City Council meetings, the production of a weekly news program, public affairs programming, and other informational programs focusing on city services, community events, and more. It is important to note the difference between municipal television and public access stations. Public access allows the public to use facilities to produce programs of the public’s choosing. AuroraTV is not a public access station.
