Pitching an idea to NYU-TV is a three step process:
- The first step is to submit a proposal. Visit the Programming Request Form.
- If your proposal is accepted, a member of NYU-TVís staff will be in contact with you to discuss making a pitch in person, which is Step 2.
- Finally, if your show idea is accepted, you will be allowed to create a ďpilotĒ of your show.
Your success for Steps 1 - 3 will determine if your show will become a regular part of NYU-TV programming.
Yes. NYU-TV welcomes submissions from faculty, staff, and students. Submit a request through our Programming Request Form. Have a DVD or VHS preview copy that can be dropped off at our offices. As with any broadcast, copyright issues may apply.
It is possible to watch a selection of mulitmedia clips from NYU Events in the form of webcasts and podcasts online right now. At the moment, none of the NYU-TV channels are available via streaming. Until this is possible, we will be adding streaming content of different programs to our website.
Unfortunately, it is not. NYU-TV and Campus Cable are both private, closed-circuit systems and can only be viewed from campus residence halls and academic buildings.
On this site, Under University Channel and Movie Channel you will find the their schedules respectively. The schedule for the rest of the cable channels can be found at: ZAP2IT.
The movies on the NYU-TV movie channel do run throughout a 24 hour period, but they are on a schedule of three movies per day, airing three times each. With set start times, weíve found that it is much easier for our viewers to have a consistent schedule to know when to tune in for the beginning of each film.
Because NYU-TVís Movie Channel has a set schedule of start times for each movie, the length of time between each movie can vary. Some movies are only ninety minutes long, while others are nearly three hours long. Unless otherwise noted on the schedule, you can find a movie on the movie channel every two and half hours.
NYU-TV works with the Avery Fisher Center to secure public performance rights for videotapes to air for educational use. There are a number of distributors who allow NYU-TV to air videotapes purchased by the Avery Fisher Center. Consult Bobcat to see if the videotape is already in the library. Regarding feature films, rights must first be secured in order to air them. Call NYU-TVís programming dept. at 212.998.5168 to see if we already have rights or if they can be secured. Students can view NYU-TV in residence halls and various locations in campus buildings.
You bet. NYU-TVís Happenings Channel provides listings of on-campus or NYU-related events via an electronic billboard system. This service is free to all faculty and NYU departments.
