Our Government Access channels expand beyond local interest with Classic Arts Showcase and late night vintage movies.
TVCTV provides three channels for Public Access. Each channel has its own guidelines for content. Together they provide a collection of programming created locally and around the world.
Channel 11 (22 Frontier) is the Community Access Network (CAN). MetroEast Community TV, Portland Community Media, Willamette Falls Community TV and TVCTV all share time on CAN. It is seen throughout the Portland Metropolitan Area.
Channel 21 shows programs created by TVCTV trained producers and volunteers using our facilities and equipment. These programs are eligible to air on the CAN channel during TVCTV’s timeshare.
Channel 23 broadcasts programming created outside the facilities of TVCTV. Whether originating locally or produced by another agency or company, all are sponsored by a trained volunteer producer of TVCTV.
TVCTV Government Production Services is more than just Government Meetings on TV. We specialize in client and jurisdictional-focused video production.
