What is Channel 78: WOPA-TV?
The Ocean Pines Public Access Television channel has been on the air for years, and is a part of the municipality of the Ocean Pines Association. It is governed by the Marketing and Public Relations Department, with a mission to keep residents abreast and encourage and facilitate the fullest participation in the production and distribution of quality programming by and for the Ocean Pines community.
The Association provides television playback services to our community through Mediacom Cable 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Mediacom transitioned to all-digital service in June 2015.
How can I get my event listed on the on-air community bulletin board?
We take announcements for non-commercial events by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please give us the information with as much lead time as possible. Then, within two weeks of your event, we will post it on the Community Events page of the Ocean Pines website. There is no charge for these announcements.
Can I drop off a dvd to be aired on Cable Access?
Absolutely. Submissions should be in pre-edited DVD format with the run time listed on the DVD. There is a charge for airing commercial content, but no charge for informational content. When you drop off your video, please give us three dates and times you would like to have it aired. We will try to accommodate. But remember, the earlier the better.
