OCTT Changes Name to DC Office of Cable Television
(Washington, DC) The District of Columbia's Office of Cable Television
and Telecommunications has been officially renamed the DC Office
of Cable Television, as set forth in an Administrative Order signed
and released by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty.
To herald the change of its agency name, OCT will engage in an
extensive branding campaign that will include new on-air station
graphics, public service announcements and a revised agency logo
featured at the top of this page.
"The change of name better reflects the specific mission and
precise responsibilities of this agency," said Eric E. Richardson,
OCT Director. "Change ensures our ability to maintain and grow
the level of innovation, leadership and reliability District residents
have come to expect of the Office of Cable Television; as well as
build excitement and anticipation for future developments."
OCT is the District Government Agency responsible for regulating
cable television in the District, as well as the administration
of the District's Government Access Channels TV-16 and TV-13. The
mission of TV-16 is to provide information regarding the many programs,
services and opportunities made available by the District of Columbia
Government. The mission of TV-13 is to provide gavel-to-gavel coverage
of the live and recorded activities of the DC City Council and its
various committees. Together these two channels are intended to
provide District of Columbia residents access to the activities
and processes of their government.
OCT will begin the process of revising the content of TV-16 and
TV-13, its Web site and other informational materials immediately
to reflect the name change.
