BTV seeks to cover athletic events from a wide range of sports on and off campus. BTV can live stream, create highlights, examine behind the scene coverage of the events, and explore the lives and perspectives of the athletes.


The BTV team is constantly exploring ongoing happenings on campus to keep the student body informed on relevant news stories. The coverage ranges from athletics, executive elections, controversial news, and much more which is developed weekly in order to maintain an informed student population.


A talented team of BrockTV.ca employees have expanded their broadcasting to original content. This allows the producers to cover a vast range of topical affairs, while reaching to a range of audience members. Original content explores topics such as food, style, dating and much more!


BrockTV.ca is your student-funded and student-staffed online video channel dedicated to providing students with news, sports, entertainment, culture and arts programming.

BrockTV.ca provides staff and volunteers with professional, skill-building and leadership opportunities in a welcoming, creative atmosphere.

BTV was founded in 2005 by a group of film and communications students who were looking to gain hands-on audio and video production experience.  With student funding (approximately $230,000/year) BTV now employs 12-14 students (per year) who produce year-round content for the Brock community. BTV also hosts the annual BTV Bash in Isaac’s; an afternoon of fun, food and entertainment! Overall BTV provides the student body with a variety of creative material through both innovative and informative content.
