The History of eTechTV
The year was 1994 and the World Wide Web was just starting to become mainstream. The PC networking revolution was in full swing and while the Internet was still primarily dial-up, the world was truly starting to become more connected as the World Wide Web became mainstream. Rich Garboski, a consultant by day saw a real demand, people who were "computer illiterate" were hungry for knowledge and wanted to learn more about computers minus the complicated terminology and buzzwords associated with technology. More importantly, they wanted concepts explained in both an entertaining and non-condescending format to an audience both young and old. With this need in mind, Tech Update TV was born.
The show ran for 5 seasons reaching its viewers on cable tv and the local educational channel and was the recipient of several viewer choice awards including; "Outstanding Educational and Instructional Series", "Outstanding Editing", and "Best Technical Effects". Over 100 live and on-demand shows were produced and aired during its initial first run that featured a wide array of technical subjects featuring technology pioneers, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders.
The show moved to New York City and has rebranded as eTechTV taking full advantage of the streaming video/audio technology, social media, and OTT to connect directly with our viewers. You can watch the show directly on the eTech.TV website, your mobile device, and on all the platforms listed on the eTechTV Website.
