The launch of the new, improved “SCATV2 YouTube Channel” (youtube.com/scatv2) is making local programs featured on Sierra Community Access Televsion available to a growing local, national and world-wide audience. Over 80 of the shows viewed in El Dorado County’s homes and businesses are now accessible to people without Comcast subscriptions who have Internet access.

Important Subscriber Update

We will be switching to a new online subscription service on Tuesday, August 5th. If you are already a subscriber with login access to MtDemocrat.com you will need to re-register under the new service. This will not affect your bill. Please take the time today to click "Subscriber Verification" to verify your subscription with us and continue your access to MtDemocrat.com before the new service takes over.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience and continued support while we make this transition.
