ACTV celebrates 20 years

Allen City Television (ACTV) celebrates 20 years of dynamic video content with a special honor from the Office of the Mayor. At the January 28 City Council meeting, 2020 was proclaimed Allen City Television Year.

Last year, ACTV earned another round of awards from the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA) and the Texas Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (TATOA). ACTV brought home eight national awards, including its ninth Overall Excellence in Government Programming. At the state level, ACTV earned seven awards, four of which were first-place honors.

ACTV spans a variety of topics and programs including Allen Americans hockey games, lectures at Allen Public Library, and the Emmy-nominated news magazine show “The New News.” In 2019, ACTV provided 200 broadcast programs – more than 150 hours – exclusively for Allen residents. You can check out ACTV videos at, or search AllenCityTV on YouTube.
