Neepawa T.V. Goes Province Wide

people ivan traill nov042012Ivan Traill of NACTV in Neepawa

The Neepawa access channel is now Manitoba's community station. NACTV was recently added to the MTS television package and is now being shown across the province. Bell Expressvu satellite owners will also get the channel before the end of the month. 

NACTV was added to the cable and satellite providers because the CRTC is requiring they provide more localized programming options. Station Manager Ivan Traill says they hope to start doing more regional programming.

"We're looking forward to getting some other programming that has to do with promoting Manitoba and rural Manitoba." says Traill. "We will be the one station (on MTS & Bell Expressvu) that actually shows the people in the city a little about rural Manitoba."

Traill, who has been operating NACTV for about 25 years, believes in the station and what it can provide to all the rural areas of the province. He says with this access to additional viewers, they will start looking at expanding its program options to include all of rural Manitoba.

NACTV and representatives with MTS christened their new partnership during the official announcement yesterday in Neepawa. NACTV was added to the MTS several weeks ago and will appear on Bell Expressvu before November 30th.
