STAMFORD, Conn., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For MXenergyTV the awards keep coming in. Just two weeks ago, the fledgling green cable channel learned it had been awarded Tellys in three different categories as part of the 32nd annual Telly Awards. Now MXTV has learned it has also been awarded a People's Telly in the category of TV Programming.
The Telly Awards honor the very best in local, regional and cable programming and commercials, as well as the finest video and film productions. As part of the Telly Awards, viewers have the opportunity to watch YouTube videos of the nominees and vote online for the "People's Telly."
"Obviously this award means a tremendous amount," says Marjorie Kass, MXenergy Managing Director and host of MXTV. "Ultimately our programming is designed to connect with the viewer and hopefully cause them to make positive environmental changes in their own lives. To win an award from those same viewers is not only a huge honor but also lets us know we are succeeding in creating quality programming which connects with our audience."
MXenergy, one of the nation's leading independent energy providers, created MXTV in the fall of 2010 as a way to educate and inform the public about the issues of conservation, sustainability and green living. MXTV is an on demand cable channel which can be found on Cablevision iO Channel 654 in the Northeast United States. The channel's flagship program, "Attainable Sustainables," has covered such topics as "Green Building", home energy audits, recycling, the latest in green technology, and developments by local businesses and schools.
Programming for 2011 is already underway with multiple segments covering topics such as solar panels on school rooftops, how college students are promoting sustainability and how one owner of an electric car is getting "plugged in" to saving money on gas. Kass says she is excited about things to come.
