About

SVTV has provided the Seneca Valley School District with programming for over three decades. You can watch us on Armstrong Cable, channel 50 in Evans City, Cranberry, Zelienople, Harmony, and several other surrounding communities. We also stream to YouTube Live, and FaceBook Live and Twitter live are coming soon.

Our studio is at Seneca Valley Senior High School, where we currently broadcast a live, student-produced news program, Seneca Says, as well as many other shows. Some of our most popular programs include concerts, plays, athletic events, and other videos that feature local events and community members.

We strive to provide programming that is informative, entertaining, creative, and relevant. Most of our programs are produced fully or in part by students and community members. Please take a tour of the site, look at some of our past and current projects, and feel free to contact us with any feedback.
