Optik Local (formerly TELUS Community TV) is where TELUS showcases relevant, local, community-produced content, available through Optik TV On Demand. At Optik Local we look for projects that encourage local story telling and creative pursuits while maintaining a strong commitment to high quality programming. From weekly magazine shows, music videos and documentaries to local variety shows and grass roots initiatives, Optik Local connects you to where you live through original content created for you and by you.
Optik Local community programming includes:
You'll find all the great programming we produce using the Optik TV On Demand Pathway: Optik Local > TELUS Studios. For community access programming content, explore Optik Local > Local TV.
We're always looking for new stories to tell. If you have a great show idea you’d like to see on Optik Local, email your suggestions to: OptikLocal@TELUS.com.
Have an already produced piece you think would be perfect for viewing on Optik TV On Demand? Need help transforming your program idea into local programming? At Optik Local, we support community organizations, local businesses, independent producers, and educational institutions in telling their stories through our community access program.
Whether you're looking for distribution, production, training or workshop support, we want to help get your local show on the go.
Stay tuned for the launch of our new Optik Local website, coming this February 2013.
Important Note: In a constant effort to improve our process, we may make program changes throughout the year. Please check the site regularly for updates to forms and application guidelines. Thank you.
