County Offers Easy Access to Cable Shows For Residents with Smartphones and Other Mobile Devices

Residents can now easily access and view live and recorded Montgomery County cable television shows directly from their smartphones and other mobile devices. This includes all of the shows cablecast on County Cable Montgomery, the County government channel (Channel 30 on the Verizon cable system and Channel 6 on RCN and Comcast). The shows range from the County’s weekly half-hour news show, “County Report This Week,” to “Council in Brief,” “Seniors Today,” “My Green Montgomery,” and County Council sessions, along with a variety of other interview and magazine-style shows, town hall meetings, and Spanish language programming. The programming can be viewed from the County’s mobile website at http://m.montgomerycountymd.gov.

To watch County cable shows using a smartphone or mobile device, go to the mobile site and tap on “apps and sites,” then “sites,” then “County Cable Montgomery,” and then “programs,” where the shows are listed in alphabetical order by name. Simply tapping the show name brings up a brief description with airing times on the cable channel, and a listing of individual episodes. Tapping the arrow next to the episode launches the show for viewing.

Although cable show access is recent on the mobile site, the initial site was launched last December as part of the County’s open government effort to increase accessibility, efficiency and transparency. Other features on the mobile site include easy access to Ride On bus schedules, bus stops, delays and complaints; Montgomery County Public Library branches and hours, guides and the “ask a librarian” feature; MC311 for information about County programs and services and to file service requests and complaints; County news and events, including press releases, media advisories and social media sites; maps; and the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s mobile storm operations site, with information about plow routes.
