Ann's Choice Television (ACTV) is the closed circuit television operation on our campus. The station employs two full time professional staff, but residents participate in a variety of ways. Whether you're in front of the camera or behind it, there's a way you can contribute!
OUR MAIN BROADCAST CHANNEL IS COMCAST CHANNEL 977.
The Electronic Bulletin Board is also broadcast on channel 978.
What can you see on Ann's Choice Television?
Comcast channel 977 HD broadcasts a number of programs produced in the studio and around campus, including events held in the Performing Arts Center. Those include our Resident produced plays and programs featuring various musical groups and our own Ann’s Choice Chorus. Several of our shows profile residents. Others give residents an opportunity to share opinions and ideas. (see below for a list of currently produced programs). In addition, we are now airing original programming produced by WHYY-TV.
As part of its mission to provide television that educates and informs our community, Ann’s Choice Television broadcasts our Resident Advisory Council meetings (live with rebroadcasts); Chris Donati's Town Hall meetings; and special events. In addition, various departments produce programs to keep residents up-to-date on operations. Also part of each day’s lineup are two daily exercise programs that were produced by staff and residents.
Ann's Choice Today
Our daily news and interview show updates residents about the day’s activities and meetings and provides timely interviews and features about campus events. The show is broadcast at the top of the hour starting at 6 am through 10 am - check the TV Guide in your weekly "Cubby Chronicle" for all air times.
Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB)
When programs aren’t being broadcast, an electronic bulletin board provides information about events, meetings, and activities going on around Ann’s Choice. Comcast channel 978 HD shows only the electronic bulletin board.
Getting Involved and Becoming Part of the Team
Residents can become involved in a variety of ways. Currently, we have residents who produce and direct shows; edit; operate equipment during productions (audio, camera); act as on-air talent and hosts; manage the tape library; and assist with productions in the Performing Arts Center.
Residents also provide technical support and assistance for events and programs that are held in the Chapel. Those programs are shown on the “Chapel Channel,” Comcast channel 980 HD.
No experience is necessary to be a part of the Ann's Choice TV team. Classes in basic camera operation are offered regularly. Other skills such as, audio, directing, and editing, are taught on a one-to-one basis. To get involved, contact Dave Rector 215-443-4919 or Bridget Shirley 215-443-4917.

ELECTRONIC BULLETIN BOARD (EBB) - Comcast channel (978 HD)
The EBB is your 24/7 resource for what's going on around campus. Announcements for clubs and organizations and information from Ann's Choice departments and administration run on a cycle, rotating all day and all night every day. Many of the announcements include audio, so you can hear as well as read them. It's a good place to not only learn about campus life, but also advertise your organization's activities. To place an announcement on Ann's Choice TV, pick up an announcement request form from the wall pocket outside the television studios in Liberty Commons, complete it and return to the same location.
GENERAL SERVICES - Comcast channel (979 HD)
Ann's Choice TV is your go-to place to learn about what General Services can do for you. Content for this channel is provided by General Services.
THE CHAPEL CHANNEL - Comcast channel (980 HD)
This is your source for information from our Pastoral Ministries Department. Included are announcements about programs, trips, special events, and religious services being held in our beautiful Chapel. The various faith groups on campus also advertise their meetings and events on these channels. Many religious services are broadcast live from the Chapel. Other events, such as concerts, are often recorded for rebroadcast at a later date. Announcements run twenty-four hours a day except when there is a program or service being broadcast. A program schedule is available in the Cubby Chronicle and in the newsletters of the individual faith groups.
