Glenview Television (GVTV) is a Government Access station owned and operated by the Village of Glenview. More than 10,000 homes receive GVTV -- on Comcast or WOW cable channel 17 or 6 (depending on your neighborhood) and AT&T U-verse channel 99 PEG.
Since 1985, GVTV has been committed to providing timely and relevant programming and information to the residents of Glenview. The station's facilities and equipment are located at Village Hall and managed by a cable coordinator.
GVTV operates a "Community Bulletin Board" which runs in between programming. The board lists agenda items of the Village Board and Commission meetings, helps publicize community events and alerts residents to important news and information. Local businesses can list job openings on the channel at no charge.
DVD copies of all programs seen on GVTV are available for a fee of $10.
The program schedule is updated weekly on this web site and is listed on the Community Bulletin Board. It is also available by contacting Glenview Television at (847) 904-4475.
