New York Network

The New York Network (NYN) provides a variety of educational services to the public through broadcasts of educational programs, public service announcements, and documentaries as well as live coverage of major political events and observances throughout the Capital Region. With a multi-studio production facility located in the Empire State Plaza, the NYN serves government agencies and the private sector through its wide-reaching production of programs throughout North America as well as in the former Soviet Union, Europe, South American, and the Middle East.

The NYN offers numerous programs and services through its two cable channels, The New York Network and The Capitol Channel, as well as its satellite transmission facility, SUNYSAT. Created in 1988, the New York Network is a combined effort among several local schools, NYN, and the office of communications of the NYS Education Department to deliver instructional programs to educators, students, and parents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Resources for professional development serve to expand the traditional classroom through electronic field trips, video programming for the K-12 curriculum, and the interactive Regents Review Live! Since 1996, the Capitol Channel has offered lawmakers and opinion leaders continuous access to occurrences in the Capitol complex as well as immediate coverage of breaking news in the New York City area through a cooperative with NY-1 News. Similarly, SUNYSAT makes possible a constant link and increased interaction among the 64 State University of New York campuses and is the largest full-time non-commercial satellite network in the United States.

Through existing programs and continuous expansion, the NYN provides New York State residents with access to educational and government resources while at the same supplying major television networks with an electronic gateway for their coverage of Albany worldwide.
