American Abilities Television Network (AATV)In 2008, AATV was launched on CW Rochester Channel in New York by Richard McCollough to bring quality programming on a variety of subjects to the deaf and hard of hearing community.
This network addresses the concerns of individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing by offering documentaries, interviews, movies and educational segments that are all opened captioned. The 30 minute programs air each Sunday and keep viewers both entertained and informed.
AATV is commercially supported and sponsored in part by the Rochester School for the Deaf. For more information, visit their website. While you are there, click the Contact Us button to find out how you can have this service brought to your city or community.
