MARION EDUCATION CHANNEL MOVES
TO BRIGHT HOUSE CHANNEL 496
March 25, 2015
MARION COUNTY

The Marion Education Channel has moved on Bright House cable system in Southeast Marion County. The MEC is now located at channel 496.

Bright House made the move earlier this month, standardizing the channel lineups for public, education, and government programming across Central Florida.

The Marion Education Channel is Marion County’s only full-time education channel. Marion County Public Schools operates the channel and produces local programming including the Golden Apple Teacher Gala, High School Concert Band Festival, Book Bowls, the Marion County Student Media Festival, and the annual Ocala / Marion County Christmas Parade.

The MEC is also the exclusive broadcaster of Marion County School Board meetings held at 5:30PM on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. As well, the MEC regularly broadcasts Marion County Commission meetings.

In addition to Bright House, the Marion Education Channel is available on Comcast 198, Cox 12, and in numerous retirement communities in Marion County. It is also available over-the-air on digital channel 7.1.

Current programming schedules are available at http://www.marion.k12.fl.us/dept/tis/extra/file/schedule.pdf.
