Broadcast Your Work

We are currently accepting submissions of noncommercial local work to be featured on our online streaming platform and cable channels. If you have a short film, experimental piece, podcast or other originally produced work, we’d love to see it!

Step 2

Create a producer account and project folder

Step 3

Submit content for broadcasting.

 

To upload your content directly to our cable channels, follow the steps below. Via our five cable channels, Open Signal reaches over 400,000 homes in the Portland metro area, broadcasting work made in our community 24 hours a day.
