When Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, and Grover Underwood were sent by Ares to retrieve his shield from the Tunnel of Love in Waterland, it turns out to be a trap set by Hephaestus that was meant for Ares and Aphrodite. Their battle against the spiders was broadcasted live to Olympus on Hephaestus TV. It is also mentioned when Percy takes Zeus' Lightning Bolt up to Mount Olympus, there is a market selling a glitter weave replica of the Golden Fleece as shown on Hephaestus TV.
When Jason Grace, Leo Valdez, and Piper McLean talk to Aeolus, he is doing a weather report (Olympus Weather or OW!), most likely on Hephaestus TV. He is also mentioned to do a News show called Aeolus Nightly which could also be on Hephaestus TV.
