MCAM HD transition
Transitioning to HD as with any new technology comes with hiccups and our path is no different! THANK YOU to viewers who reached out to let us know of intermittent (and some more constant) issues with one of our channels! Our signal is livestreamed and so we can see and hear it (as can you!) anywhere, anytime but that signal then travels to a box that encodes the signal to go to the cable systems. Each cable system has a different box and they do not always want to use the same parameters so in getting HD going, we've had a transition time of getting all this sorted out. We believe we have it all corrected now (it took a LOT of effort from both cable systems and our staff to work thru it.. there is little to no guidance from manufacturers). Please let us know of any issues that arise!
MCAM's channels (Government Channel is 1058 Sparklight or 12 Midco; Moorhead Access is 1069 Sparklight or 99 Midco) are on 24/7 and can also always be seen via livetream! Thank you for your assisitance!!
Moorhead Access and Government Channels in HD!
MCAM's channels, Governmental and Moorhead Access, are now in HD on cable! Channels 1058 and 1069 replace 58 and 69 on Sparklight and on Midco we remain at 12 and 99! We have had ongoing testing with Sparklight to cure some equipment issues on their end so if you experience and outage, please let us know! We do monitor our signals both coming from our equipment (and we also LIVESTREAM both channels so check there to be sure our channel is operating!) and on both cable providers but we cannot be here 24 hours a day! Thank you for contacting us with any issues! Email directly to: email@example.com or call us at 218-299-5101 and please leave a call back number!

MCAM is now in High Definition on cable!
MCAM just completed the process of going full HD on its' cable channels! Sparklight and Midco installed the last link of the equipment chain in order to bring MCAM's channels into HD! There are some changes.. MCAM's Sparklight channels are now 1058-Government and1069-Moorhead Access (add 1000 to our old channels!). Midco are the same: 12 for Govt. and 99 for Moorhead Access!
Sparklight is tweaking some digital tiling occurring but Midco is spot on. Of course, MCAM has been in HD for several years but the chain of HD coverage for the City of Moorhead as well as the link to the cable companies had to be completed. You can also view us on our digital stream anywhere in the world on your phone, tablet, computer or internet capable TV or device! Just go to our home page, clicjk STREAM and choose the channel!
MCAM broadcasts select SpudsTV games!
MCAM will continue to broadcast Moorhead Spuds games of various sports on a weekly basis, trying to keep a consistent night. On the nights we do broadcast a game, any pre-emption of regularly broadcast shows or religious services will run in their later times (please see our schedule!). We would like to hear from you on what you would like to see! We are broadcasting the football games and will broadcast many of the hockey games (we will try for a regular "hockey night" to more easily schedule and not disrupt normal programming as much) but we'd like to also present various other sports so please, email us and chime in! firstname.lastname@example.org
