Hundreds of residents in the Exuma area are excited to tune into OUR TV this evening. OUR TV, the premiere channel on REV, is pleased to announce the official launch of its service in Great Exuma.
Since its inception in the summer of 2000, OUR TV (formerly NB12) has only aired on a handful of islands, including Nassau, Grand Bahama and Abaco. The OUR TV team is happy to extend its reach to even more homes throughout our archipelago.
“OUR TV has been available through off-air services in a few areas within the Exuma Cays and Exuma chain for a long time, but this is the first time that it’s being distributed through our TV platform there. This is also the first time it’s being formally introduced to the larger community of Great Exuma, and that’s significant because that’s where the majority of residents live,” said Station Manager Alexia Coakley.
Now viewers will be able to enjoy award-winning original shows exclusive to OUR TV, including “On The Record” featuring Jerome Sawyer, “The SawyerBoy Show”, “Happy Foods 242” and OUR News.
This launch comes just in time for the Exuma Heritage Festival, which will also be featured on OUR TV. “This is our second year covering the festival, which is being held by the Ministry of Tourism, but we’ve been producing festivals from Barraterre to Rollesville for at least the last decade,” Coakley continued.
OUR TV is available throughout The Bahamas on REV TV channel 212. This launch marks the beginning of a rollout campaign to distribute OUR TV throughout the entire country. The station will celebrate 20 years of broadcasting in 2020.
