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 24 hour a day, seven-day a week cable channel through a partnership with Comcast Cable of Florence, Alabama. This partnership enables Northwest-Shoals to deliver video-assisted distance education courses, adult education programs, and community service programs to over 32,000 homes in the Northwest Alabama region. The Northwest-Shoals cable station, channel 192 supports the Distance Education Program in providing education to those students who possibly would not have access to educational opportunities. Our TV programs are also available 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.
