About Us

The Government Channel is a project of Alleghany Community Television, Inc., a certfied, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Sparta, North Carolina.

This site is the on-demand streaming, companion site to channel 22 on Skybest Television. Skybest channel 22 launched in February 2014, in order to make local government programming available to the citizens of Northwest North Carolina.

Alleghany Community Television started as an educational tool as part of the A. Anderson Huber Cyber Campus within Alleghany High School. It has expanded the operations so more students can be involved in every part of the operation. ACTV is financially self sustaining, by providing A/V services. These services allow local businesses to sponsor different segments on the station.

The intent is to give local students a jump-start into the broadcasting industry through an educational setting. With this in mind, students have more opportunities to set future goals into areas they have had experience.
