MCPS-TV → Our History
On February 3, 1986, MCPS TV had its first cablecast with only four hours of programming. Through the years, we have increased our technical and creative know-how. Broadcasting on two Comcast Cable Channels in Montgomery County, MCPS TV produces or airs more than 40 hours of programming a day. First developed as an internal training facility called "TV Services," the department evolved into Cable TV in 1985 and later became MCPS Instructional TV in 1994. In July 2010, MCPS Instructional TV was shortened to MCPS TV. Today MCPS TV provides programs to more than 220,000 homes and all 194 schools in Montgomery County.
