Another duty of the Orion Cable Commission is to oversee the administration of the Public, Educational, and Government (PEG) Access channels. The Commission has hired a non-profit corporation, Orion Neighborhood Television (ONTV) to manage the channels and the public access facility.

The Cable Commission has purchased space in the Orion Center on Joslyn Road. Orion Neighborhood Television has moved into their new facility, and will be sharing the building with the Orion Senior Center and Orion Township Parks and Recreation. The Orion Township Library also has a branch in the building.
The Cable Commission authorized the purchase of equipment to allow live web streaming of all three PEG channels on the Orion Neighborhood Television website: www.orionONTV.org Local government meetings are archived and indexed on the website and can be viewed in their entirety, or by agenda item.
The Cable Commission also authorized the purchase of equipment necessary to send the PEG channel signals to AT&T for their Uverse subscribers.
Programs from Lake Orion High School can be seen during the school year on the Education Channel due to equipment purchased through a grant from the Cable Commission.
