In need of a solid example of what a PEG channel supporting a large city should look like? Then take a look at Seattle Channel, the PEG provider for Seattle, Washington and this week’s Government Video Website of the Week.
Seattle Channel has everything a PEG operator’s website should have: a live stream of its cable channel, on demand video of shows and past gavel-to-gavel coverage of city council meetings. But the reason this website gets a nod of approval is for its updated and simple design. For example, when looking for the latest video of a Seattle City Council Budget Committee meeting the user only needs to click on the “Mayor & Council” tab and is immediately directed to most recent meeting videos. Each on-demand gavel-to-gavel video even has markers to show viewers where a specific part of the public meeting begins.
Seattle Channel as a PEG operator airs on two cable channels. It’s also a recipient of the Radio Television Digital News Association’s 2015 Kaleidoscope Award as well as winner of the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors’ Excellence in Government Programming award.
