Frequently Asked Questions
What can my sponsor message say?
WTCO follows the same guidelines as other public access stations. We can acknowledge the level of sponsorship, your business name, the products you sell but we cannot show pricings, comparisons or have a call to action. An example that would work would be "Tri-County Communications Cooperative is a local provider of high-speed internet, television and phone service serving many areas throughout Trempealeau, Jackson and Eau Claire Counties. For more information on TCC you can visit their website at tccpro.net"
I would like to go with a larger package, can I make payments?
Yes! We would be willing to take payments in Annual, Bi-Annual or Quarterly payments. Our monthly plans are also available as pre-pay plans.
We are a non-profit, are there any deals for us?
Yes! Non-profits are allowed to promote their events on our community bulletin board free of charge. Just email you events to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get them up on channel 8 as well as between programming on 18/618 HD.
I own a business, can I promote my sale on WTCO?
Yes! We can promote sales that do not indicate pricing. For example, if you are a grocery store having a sale on hamburger, we can let people know that you are having a sale on hamburger but we can not tell them the price of the hamburger but could provide a phone number or website to call for information.
How many people watch WTCO?
That is a difficult question. We aren't sure exactly. We do know that our channel is received by all cable subscribers of TCC. We also have many people tune in online and on Roku making it difficult to know for sure.
Is my underwriting tax-deductible?
According to the IRS, donations to governmental entities that benefit the public are tax-deductible. Check with your accountant or tax profession to be sure.
What does an acknowledgement look like?
