Unlike broadcast television and commercial cable services that deliver programs to you, CommunityTV is TV that you create! You pick the topic, you write the script, you run the camera, and you edit the video.

CommunityTV Channel 189 is funded in part through franchise fees collected from local cable companies in exchange for the use of public right-of-ways. Everyone who lives in northwest Lower Michigan is welcome to participate, and it's free for residents of these contributing jurisdictions. You can watch CommunityTV on Charter Cable Channel 189 in northwestern lower Michigan. Or, you can stream the channel from anywhere with a decent internet connection.
