Program acquisition policy
Besides producing and commissioning content, TVO acquires content in the areas of current affairs, drama, history, science, arts, biography and other genres. Acquired programs will generally contribute to TVO’s educational mandate. For example, a doc or series may reflect issues of justice, politics, diversity, leadership, education, social mores, community development and history. From time to time, TVO may acquire programs that do not fulfill those mandates, but are of exceptional quality, not easily available, and likely to engage TVO’s audience. If there is sensitive content in any TVO program, TVO will provide viewer advisory messages.
