FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Channel 3: Your Channel, PLNU’s official student-operated cable channel, isn’t just for television anymore. Now you can catch your favorite Channel 3 shows on demand, on and off campus, on the World Wide Web. Check out the new website at www.vimeo.com\channelthree to view episodes of Coastline News, The Beat, Reel Students, S.E.T. (Sports Entertainment Tonight), and Christians in Media. All these shows are student-produced for Channel 3.

This is the first semester that Channel 3 has owned the website, and the management team is excited to see how they can use it in the future to better serve and entertain viewers. Sherene Ebrahimi, the Marketing and Promotions Manager for Channel 3, says the chance to share student projects online has a great potential to increase viewership and interest in the channel.

“Now, Channel 3 is more accessible. They can see program samples on the internet,” said Ebrahimi.

Channel 3 has chosen to open a website through Vimeo so that students would have access to video archives, which is not available through their original page on a PLNU hosted website. Their goal for the future is to make accessing the website easier by connecting the Vimeo account to the PLNU website.
