butv10 is Boston University’s student-operated media production and distribution network. Live-streamed and on-demand programming is available online at butv10.com and on campus television channel 10.
Established in 1989 as BUTV and rebranded butv10 in 2005, the organization produces an array of news, information, sports, drama, comedy, and variety programming. Content has received multiple Associated Press, NATAS, Telly, and Webby Award recognitions.
Though students had been producing content for years, Boston University had no formal distribution platform. According to butv10 faculty advisor Christophor Cavalieri, once the campus was wired for cable, the plan for a student-run television station was initiated in September 2005. The channel premiered on February 22, 2006.
