Submit A Program

Do you accept video files?

‘Ōlelo accepts “file based submissions” to air on our television channels.  What does that mean?  You can edit your program on your computer and export it to one of our accepted formats.  When completed, you can submit the file itself by loading it onto a hard drive or USB flash drive and personally delivering it any one of our CMC locations where we will transfer it from your drive to ours.

The accepted file formats are listed below.  If you need help understanding this process, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 808-834-0007 x182 or email us at You are also welcome to stop by a media center where our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you.
