The Good Friends Connection
In addition to extensive commercial programming, La Posada TV offers four channels of local video coverage of campus events on a daily schedule and on-demand. There is also an emergency channel, a campus information channel with dining menus and activity schedules and a scrolling guide channel.
Channel 1 – Emergency channel. Displays information about campus outages or important notifications. This channel broadcasts the Sun Sounds audio service and residents can hear newspapers and other current publications being read by Sun Sounds Volunteers. For the Sun Sounds program schedule, visit: http://sunsounds.org/program-schedule.
Channel 2 – A continuous scrolling guide for all channels on La Posada TV. This is not an interactive guide, so you would manually tune to the channel you want after seeing which program you want to watch.
Channel 5 – Displays a continuous loop of campus information such as dining menus, scheduled activities, birthdays and other current information.
Channel 67 – Displays the schedule of programs that will play on channels 68 through 71.
Channel 68 – Selected programs recorded by Media Services Volunteers at La Posada are broadcast on this channel.
Channels 69, 70 & 71 – Video On-Demand Channels. La Posada recordings are produced and stored on a digital server known as “the tank”. A complete alphabetical listing (which includes the program order number) of all programs in the tank is available at both the La Perla and La Vista lobbies.
