Senior Discovery TV (SDTV)

Senior Discovery TV (SDTVreno) was created and sponsored in Spring 2014 by the City of Reno's Senior Citizen Advisory Committee, which itself is under the auspices of the Reno City Council.  Because of Reno's increasing senior demographics of those aged 50+, SDTVreno's shared vision is to promote and to empower the City's creative senior citizens to become involved as city-volunteer TV Production Team members of the group for the purpose of producing creative video movie content with the credo "TV by seniors, for seniors, about seniors."

SDTVreno programming content is for distribution and broadcast on the City's public television channels via its current/future cable provider (Charter CH 192/194), as well as for the City's YouTube-based Senior Discovery Channel and any other social media platforms that may become applicable in the future. To view content on-demand, just go to the Senior Discovery Channel. Or you can view programs on CH 192/194 at noon daily, plus at other periodic unscheduled times on various days.
