Want to be on 360 North? Here's your chance!

Have you ever posted a video on YouTube? Have you ever fantasized about creating a video for television? Well here’s your chance! It’s not too late to create a short 1-2 minute video for 360 North’s Earth Day special! We’re looking for videos that focus on sustainability, clean energy, conservation, alternative fuels – basically anything that has to do with the environment! We’re planning an Earth Day special in April to showcase all the videos we get.
Need even more incentive? We’re partnering with PBS and all eligible videos will be sent on to PBS and could be selected to air on a national PBS show!! What’s more, you could be flown to DC to be part of the live studio audience if you video is selected!!

But here’s the catch – TIME IS RUNNING OUT! We need your submission by March 6 to be eligible for the PBS show. We take HD or SD formats, so bust out those digital recorders and get busy!! Contact Kristin at 907-463-6472 or for more information.

New Channels in Juneau!

360 North is now on Channel DTV3.2 in Juneau.

Beginning this week 360 North and AlaskaOne will be broadcast "over the air" in the Juneau area on new channels. The new service is part of the nationwide conversion to digital television, mandated by federal law. KTOO-TV’s main digital TV transmitter has been in operation since July, 2004.

KTOO-TV is now broadcasting on digital TV channel 3, and has also added digital TV service for Lemon Creek. PBS and Alaska One programming is available on DTV channel 3.1, while 360 North and Gavel to Gavel Alaska programming is on DTV channel 3.2.

Viewers outside of Juneau will not be affected by this change nor will those who watch by cable, DirecTV or Dish Network.

By Popular Demand

One of the most popular programs this year on 360 North has been Throwbacks to a Golden Age of Northwest Boats. When it comes to viewer comments, this has been one of the favorites. Alaska is full of people who love boats. This program is for those people.

Throwbacks is a documentary film that profiles the great naval architects of Seattle's early years and the famous boatyards and shipwrights that applied world-renowned craftsmanship to their nautical visions. It follows the classic boats and yachts through the decades and introduces the vessels and the people who lovingly care for them today.

As the deadline for the 90-day session looms, coverage will expand through weekends and late-night meetings. This will ensure that Alaskans throughout the state can watch decisions being made by their representatives.
