30 Years of Senate Television

June 2, 2016, marks a special anniversary for the U.S. Senate and for C-SPAN: It's the 30th anniversary of television coverage of the Senate's floor debate, carried on C-SPAN2. On that day the cable television industry launched C-SPAN2 expressly to carry the video feed from the Senate chamber, live and gavel-to-gavel. Today the Senate, and all of C-SPAN2’s other programming, can be seen in 95 million cable and satellite homes and live on the internet at C-SPAN.org.
