CharmTV, Baltimore's publicly owned television station, will begin live streaming City Council meetings and network programming over the Internet this month.
The network's streaming capability, at CharmTV.tv, will be available on desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones. The network has been testing the service and is "seeing great results," according to Tonia Lee, CharmTV's general manager.
"We are excited to introduce this functionality to greatly improve the transparency around our government programming as well as increase the access those outside of Baltimore have to our network," Lee said in a statement. "Now, they can access CharmTV whenever, wherever."
CharmTV airs on Comcast Channel 25 in Baltimore. It broadcasts government meetings, in addition original programming, such as "My Town" and "Tasty Travels," that showcases city restaurants, businesses and neighborhoods.
