|About The Logan Lake TV Society
Originally called the Logan Lake Recreation Society, our Society was founded in the late 1970's, to
provide TV to the town of Logan Lake, BC. At the time, direct-to-home satellite TV did not exist & reception
of even near-by TV & FM stations was (and still is) impossible, due to our high, mountainous terrain.
Back then we broadcast just two analog channels. Over the years, the system has grown. By 1988
we had 12 channels (still, all analog), but no specialty channels. Today, we broadcast 26 digital, UHF
channels and an on-screen program guide. We offer every major Canadian and US network,
as well as both SPN and TSN Sports networks, a movie channel and a number of specialty channels.
That's more channels of over-the-air, digital TV, per capita, than anywhere in North America!
We also re-broadcast 6 FM stations on the FM band & one more on TV Channel 32.1.
The station is owned by the good people of Logan Lake, but operated by your TV Society.
Because we are a small, non-profit, all volunteer group, we can provide the most TV channels,
per person, in North America, for considerably less than the cost of the most basic cable, anywhere
in Canada! And the picture on our new digital channels is superb!
We recently moved all our transmissions to Channel 34 & below, as the government wishes the upper
channels for cel-phone use. Our next challenge is to handle the conversion from MP-2 to MP-4
in the satellite transmissions. This will not affect you, but is consumng hundreds of volunteer hours.
We should all be proud of our not-so-little TV system!
