2004, NPACT moved to the Valley Oak High School campus. The space was remodeled to include offices, playback, and a new studio and control room.
2006, NPACT began expanding its services and signed a Franchise Agreement with the City of American Canyon, to provide cable services to American Canyon Residents. NPACT officially made its dba, Napa Valley TV, to include the entire Valley as its service area.
2008, NVTV launched 24/7 Live Streaming and Video on Demand services for all of its programming. NVTV also partnered and signed a Franchise Agreement with the Town of Yountville, which provided cable services to Yountville Residents.
2009, NVTV updated its Franchise Agreements with Partner Cities to reflect the new Digital Infrastructure Video Competition Act (DIVCA) Ordinance enacted by the state of California. NVTV expanded its viewer base by launching TV27 and TV28 on AT&T’s U-Verse television service, which reaches 20+ cities in Northern California.
Rebuilt our studio green screen facility and brought our Control Room Facility up to a more technological standard by implementing Hard-Disk Recording. After over 10 years of use, we retired our old Analog SVHS record deck and now have a 100% digital, tapeless workflow for our Studio Shows. We also upgraded our staff field equipment to tapeless workflows.
Napa Public Access Cable Television’s mission is to provide anyone living or working in Napa County the opportunity to exercise his or her First Amendment right to expression through access to the cable television system.
In support of this mission, NPACT has adopted the following vision:
Napa Valley TV will be recognized statewide as a model for public access cable television.
