Cable6.org Gets a Facelift

I've spent the last week working on the new www.cable6.org website. Paul Dingeman and I have been discussing for some time the possibility of adding streaming and video-on-demand content to the site. This seemed like the best time to do it.

Although not totally complete, I'm happy with the first version of the site. I am trying to give visitors easy access to what they are looking for. Most visitors come for three reasons:
First, they are looking to for the phone number of the station. Second, they want to know the schedule. Third, they want to re-watch something they saw on TV. So, these three tasks will be easily accessible from the home page.

I am also adding some other unique features. One is a photo gallery to showcase different events. Next is an online bulletin board submission form. Finally, a volunteer and show idea forum where viewers can be more involved.

I told Paul to wait until Christmas week to mention the new site. I want to make sure it looks nice and is 100% functional before then.
