HCTV, Cable Channel 27, serves the residents of Haltom City in many ways. Its main purpose is to provide valuable information to City residents on a continual basis. This is accomplished one of two ways...via programming and bulletins that are all cablecast on HCTV, Cable Channel 27.
Most any special event, program or official municipal government function that the City sponsors will be advertised on Cable Channel 27. Often times such events will also be taped and cablecast on HCTV for residents to see.
Examples of such programming include City Council Meetings, the annual Springfest, guest speakers at the library & Senior Center, the annual HCPD Awards Ceremony, the annual Images of Haltom City Photo Contest and guest appearances for the Summer Reading Program at the HCPL.
Some programming is rebroadcast at specific times throughout the week. Such programs include City Council Meetings, NE Chamber Luncheons, Tarrant County Commissioner's Court and Army Newswatch. Other times, depending on the level of activities going on in the City, programs will be interspersed throughout the week. For a list of programming, click here.

Simply connect the coax cable directly into your television/VCR. If you have a "cable-ready" TV or VCR you should be able to receive most cable channels up to 100. If this does not work, then you will have to subscribe to Charter Communications in order to receive HCTV, Cable Channel 27.
