TGOV Available Online

Tulsa Government Access Television, TGOV, is available online in both live streaming and on demand at www.tgovonline.org.
TGOV is a collaboration of several City of Tulsa departments. The Tulsa City Council teamed up with the Information Technology and Communications departments to accomplish one of the Tulsa City Council’s Compendium of Needs’ Citizen Engagement goals to bring TGOV online to a wider audience.
Local government programming is accessible to cable television subscribers on Cox Communications Channel 24, and the video streaming offers another option that allows people to view TGOV programming from any personal computer, anywhere in the world.
For Tulsans, these two tools are used to promote transparency in local government.
The City of Tulsa partnered with San Francisco-based Granicus Inc. to provide this online solution. The Granicus solution allows the City to stream software to capture, manage, store and distribute online video recordings.
“The beauty of the web streaming is that citizens can immediately click on an agenda item of interest, watch the video and view the supporting documentation all from one page,” said Council Communications Director Nathan Brown and director of the web streaming project.
TGOV broadcasts Tulsa City Council meetings, Airport Authority Meetings, Board of Adjustment meetings, and Planning Commission meetings. These meetings will be archived and available for a year. Special features highlighting the city government and Tulsa will also be available to view on tgovonline.org, and more TGOV programming will be added.
