Arlington TV is the visual communications channel for Arlington Virginia County Government. Since 1981, our mission has been to produce informative, educational and entertaining programs about Arlington County services, programs and people to a target audience of Arlington residents, businesses and visitors.
We communicate the operation and decision making process of Arlington County Government and disseminate information about our different departments.
We reflect the diversity and values that exist within the community through storytelling. The programs we produce are aimed at people of all ages, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation.
County Board Meetings
Arlington TV provides live, gavel-to-gavel coverage of all County Board meetings. Video-on-demand webcasts of the County Board meetings are also available.
We use a professional closed-captioning service to make County Board meetings more accessible for those who are hearing-impaired.
During County Board meetings, closed captioners are listening to the meeting and transcribing it live. The captioner uses phonetic spelling when the word is not immediately obvious. This is why you may see proper names and even common words spelled in funny or unusual ways.
For commercial and entertainment programming, captioners have a script provided to them in advance.
