On August 1, 2000, Northwest-Shoals Community College became the first two-year college in the state of Alabama to operate a cable television channel. Northwest-Shoals began broadcasting programs on a 24x7 cable channel through a partnership with Comcast Cable of Florence, Alabama. This partnership enables Northwest-Shoals to deliver video lectures, adult education programs, and community service programs to over 32,000 homes in the Northwest Alabama region. Northwest-Shoals Broadcasting is available in the Shoals area on Comcast cable channel 192 and in Franklin County via Charter Cable, channel 2. We would like to welcome you to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge that can be obtained from viewing NWSB.
