“Recent updates to our studio and broadcast equipment now make the Southeastern Channel’s live broadcast available to anyone, anywhere, on any desktop computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet,” General Manager Rick Settoon said. “Whether it’s educational programming like history shows or telecourses, community programs, performances like musical concerts, or Southeastern sports events, we receive regular requests to watch our programming from loyal viewers who are often on the go. Now they can watch if a television, desktop or laptop isn’t accessible, as can viewers who are more dependent on their mobile devices.”
