On-Demand Video Service
The City's on-demand – or streaming – video service provides for online viewing of televised meetings of the City Council and nine City boards and commissions. The service also provides streaming video of special programming – such as the award-winning news magazine “City in 15” – that airs on Midland’s government channel, MGTV-188.
City meetings are streamed “live” and archived for future viewing. Live streams can only be viewed at the time a meeting is held. Links to past meetings from 2005 to the present can be found on the On-demand video page. Meetings will show as "In Progress" when a meeting is streaming live. Past videos can be viewed at anytime, and can be found below the "Archived Videos" header. In addition, the MGTV-188 message board is streamed live 24/7 except when meetings or special programming is being aired.
Boards and commissions meetings that are streamed include the following:
Aviation Advisory Commission
Cable Access Advisory Commission
Center City Authority
Downtown Development Authority
Parks & Recreation Commission
West Main Street Historic District Commission
Zoning Board of Appeals
