Cable Covers New Jersey

Consumers Win with Cable

New Jersey Programming


Assembly Speaker Joe Roberts on Meet the LeadersAs one of the state's leading news and information providers, New Jersey's cable industry has taken on the responsibility of keeping citizens informed and up to date on the vital issues of the day, and connected to the people who serve them in the Statehouse.

Cable meets that challenge in many different ways:
  • News programming on Cablevision's local programming channels, News 12 NJ, and Time Warner's NY1.
  • Original, exclusive public affairs programming such as Comcast Local Edition and Cablevision's Meet the Leaders, Neighborhood Journal, and We've Got Issues.
  • Public service announcements, one of the most effective ways for legislators to communicate directly with their constituents.
  • Gavel-to-Gavel coverage of the legislature, providing complete, unedited coverage of state legislative sessions. Cable's coverage is also simulcast online by the legislature here.  
  • Local, on demand availability of candidate debates, major party conventions, and other significant events.
  • Cable operator-provided forums known as public, educational, and governmental access channels (PEG channels) which allow local governments, non-profit organizations, and schools to communicate with their communities.
