DATV is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that, since 1978, has given Dayton the “Freedom to Communicate” as a community forum that empowers all citizens to learn, create and express their ideas through electronic media. As the original form of social media, DATV provides the training, equipment, and facilities for local residents to create their very own non-commercial local cable TV programs. DATV operates two cable access channels in the City of Dayton, Ohio, on Time Warner Cable. DATV is a public access channel seen on Time Warner channel 5 in Dayton, Riverside, and Butler Township; Dayton Spiritual Television is a religious access channel seen regionally on Time Warner Digital Ch. 992. This Dayton Original is a “Star” in the Dayton community!
