As a service to citizens of the Denver metro area, member communities of the Colorado Communication and Utility Alliance (CCUA) cooperatively produces a series of cable television programs in the public interest each year. These programs are of regional interest, and typically address important topics that might otherwise not be fully explored by other media.
"Connected Colorado" programs first air on all government access channels in the Denver metro area through an arrangement with Comcast, Inc. Subsequently, CCUA member communities with government access cable channels, usually found on Cable Channel 8, receive copies of each program for re-cablecast as they wish.
Wheat Ridge is a member of the Colorado Communication and Utility Alliance (CCUA). CCUA is a board of local government representatives comprised of more than 30 communities from throughout Colorado. Formed in 1992 to facilitate franchise agreements with local cable television companies, the CCUA has since realized bargaining strength and recognition in all areas of telecommunications expertise.
