What is Digital Break
The Digital Break is an experiment in broadcast television, bringing creative forces together from around the world. Launched in 2019 as a hour long programming block on Saturday nights focused around local gaming stores, it has grown to include independent animation and science fiction films. The Digital Break is proud to showcase the work of artists from around the world and aspires to continue sharing stories as we grow.
Moving Forward in 2020
July 1, 2020 will be our second six month season with WXVO Ocean 7 out of Ocean Springs, MS. We developed an enthusiastic fanbase that reached out to the station after our initial run to let them know, they wanted more. In January we launched our new site to promote the television block, keep fans engaged with our content, and try to go further in the future promoting the content creators we work with. This six month season we have two hours of programming to fill for six nights a week. This is a tremendous opportunity for our small crew, but also an opportunity to broadcast something unique in our local market.
