Staffed by the City of Iowa City's Cable TV office, City Channel 4 programs Iowa City cable channels 4 and 5. In addition, we provide video services to the City of Iowa City as well as to Iowa City-area non-profit organizations.
We also work with the City Council-appointed Telecommunications Commission, which oversees the City's franchise with Mediacom Communications Corporation.
On this website, you can watch our cable station live, see our cartridge belt, browse through our extensive video library of past and current programming, and request video services for select events of non-profit organizations. You can also check the activities of Iowa City Telecommunications Commission, look up Mediacom's channel lineup and prices, and request help in dealing with Mediacom personnel.
