Citizens Local TV Channel Sponsorships Now Available

Subscribers who have television service through Citizens Telephone Cooperative (d.b.a. Citizens) have exclusive access to a local channel, CCTV Channel 20. Through the IPTV platform, SFN TV Now, CCTV Channel 20 is full of locally recorded and produced programming by the Cooperative’s Video Production team and other locally submitted content.

Customers can watch Floyd County High School home games; many of them live, which is great for residents who can’t make it to the school or no longer drive at night. Aside from the live games, Citizens supports the community by rebroadcasting FCHS football, basketball, volleyball, baseball, and softball games each season. You can enjoy all FCHS sports seasons at 7 pm.

You can also watch FCHS academic matches and special events like FCHS Graduation on the local channel. Viewers can see the Local Origination Program on the on-screen guide or check out the guide on the CCTV page. Citizens also posts programming on the Bulletin Board, Channel 23, and the social media for Citizens Telephone Coop.

Floyd’s 4-H Extension Office has partnered with CCTV to produce “The Ag Show with Jon Vest”. The series covers all things agriculture from tree grafting to soil preparation, seed planting, harvesting, and preserving fruits and vegetables. The first episode of a new series called The Ag Show: Seed to Shelf Series will air on April 23, at 6:30 PM. In this first Seed to Shelf episode, Jon will go over how to prepare your seeds and soil for the ideal conditions to get your seeds germinating and plants growing strong throughout the season.

Another series exclusive to CCTV Channel 20 is “Looking Back” with "Floyd County Millers" and features the interviews of Roy Turpin, Gene Vaughn, and Cephas Dalton. This program will air on April 20, at 6:30 PM. In this series, you will learn how water-powered mills were once a vital part of Floyd's economy. To remember this important part of history, Quentin Horn interviews three former millers who share their stories in an era where purchasing flour and cornmeal at the supermarket was far less common.
