Below, find answers to general and technical questions and concerns for NLTV.
If Nā Leo TV cannot film your event due to budget constraints or a full production schedule, you are welcome to post event requests with your contact info on the bulletin boards at our facilities, as some of our certified external producers periodically look for community events they can go out and produce for other people. Please be aware that these are clients of NLTV who produce their own shows, not employees of Nā Leo TV.
You could also always consider becoming a certified producer in order to film your events or interests in the future. Visit http://naleo.tv/training/ for more information.
By providing the monthly show “Hawaiʻi Island Speaks Out,” Nā Leo TV offers residents an open mic and public forum television program for individual and nonprofit organizations to talk about their issue or nonprofit, or to share their talent, for up to ten minutes. Visit http://naleo.tv/hawaii-island-speaks-out/ for more information.
By paying a nominal fee and taking our certification course, Hawaiʻi residents can become certified producers. Certified producers can access video production equipment, edit bays, and studios in order to produce and air TV shows—all for FREE—on our public access television channels.
Residents who create programs with outside equipment have the opportunity to submit their programs for airing on our channels as presenters. Presenters must abide by the policies and procedures of Nā Leo TV and either hold the copyright to the program or have a release from the copyright holder.
As we must air non-commercial programming, make sure your program contains no such content, or else there is a possibility viewers will call to complain to Nā Leo TV and/or the Dept. of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, which results in an investigation and even your program being pulled off the air until if and when you remove the commercial content from the show.
Nā Leo ‘O Hawaiʻi (NLOH) was incorporated in 1993 and in 1994 operations began in Hilo and Kona. We are governed by a volunteer board of nine individuals who serve three-year terms. NLTV allows people to practice their right to free speech in a variety of ways, and we strive to find relevant programs about and for our Big Island of Hawaiʻi to broadcast on our public access television stations
