See more an added source of information and opinion, a forum to discuss issues, and a means of providing first-hand stories about O`ahu's rich community life. We do this by providing access to video production training and equipment, studio space, edit facilities and air time for persons interested in delivering non-commercial messages to their community utilizing the powerful medium of cable television in order to have a positive impact on the community. Public, Education and Governmental (PEG) access is the result of a national citizens’ movement in the 1970s. It was created to provide communities with airtime on their local cable systems. Since 1989, ‘Ōlelo Community Media has provided PEG access services on O‘ahu. We currently cablecast via the Oceanic Time Warner Cable system. Over the years, the hard work of community members, government and education partners, and volunteers has helped PEG access on O‘ahu evolve into a dynamic and important tool that promotes civic dialogue, education, open government, and cultural preservation. At ‘Ōlelo, we believe that the free exchange of ideas, reflected in the basic tenets of free speech and exercised using PEG access, can and does contribute to stronger, healthier, more engaged communities. Diverse ideas can be shared and non-commercial community voices can utilize the powerful medium of cable television—without the constraints and cost of commercial television. We strive to ensure a diversity of voices and programming on our channels, to contribute to an informed and engaged community and viewers, to promote lifelong learning, and to build community. Additionally, we continue to develop and support initiatives aimed at increasing civic participation in the democratic process.
