When the legislature is not in session, other live gavel-to-gavel programming was carried, including the Oregon Supreme Court, and meetings of the Governor and his or her cabinet. When there were no live gavel-to-gavel meetings, other local or statewide public affairs programming was carried.
Officials at the Oregon State Capitol planned to discontinue the broadcast of the Oregon Channel after the 2011 session, concluding that the viewership of the Oregon Channel had dropped too low to justify spending the money to keep it running. Both the lack of interest from local Salem/Salem-area Public, educational, and government access (PEG) cable television channels and the failure of public broadcast to produce a reasonable agreement for transmission to other Government-access television (GATV) channels across Oregon forced this public service to discontinue.
Video of all legislative hearings and floor sessions continues to be streamed live on the legislature's website.
