Can I suggest a program or episode?
Yes! In fact a lot of what you see here came from suggestions made by fans, co-workers, friends and family. If there’s something you think is missing, send us an email at tvobeta.tvo.org with 'Program Suggestion' in the subject line. We’ll do our best to make it happen. It’s worth noting that a lot of the programs that aired on TVO can't be put online. Sometimes, for example, a program was created by another broadcaster, so we don't own the rights required to upload it to the internet. Where TVO-produced programs involved freelance actors, musicians or writers, TVO must clear the rights to use them, which involves both time and budgetary considerations. We hope you understand that clearing archival television for online viewing is not always feasible.
How do I find a video?

Can I buy a DVD of a video I saw on your site?
Unfortunately we are not set up to sell DVDs, and much of the content on this site cannot be sold due to rights restrictions.
