Oradell Public Television (OPTV)

Launched in 2006, Oradell Public Television (also known as OPTV) manages the Borough's audio-visual needs, maintains its video archives, and oversees Oradell's very own public access cable television station, accessible on Cablevision (Channel 77) or Verizon (Channel 28).

OPTV brings everything you need to know about Oradell into your home. Check the station's Community Bulletin Board for upcoming programs and events. Tune into Mayor & Council meetings and work sessions, Planning Board meetings, Zoning Board meetings, budget meetings, and municipal reorganization day. Meetings are typically broadcast live, with replays throughout the month. OPTV also broadcasts news shows, borough special events, and other diverse programming.

OPTV is always looking for new volunteers to work in the Control Room for live broadcasts of municipal meetings. It also needs volunteers to work as production crew for original programming. Professional experience in television production is not necessary; training will be provided.
