Origins[edit]

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.[2]
