Help Save Public Access!

Your community cable channels (public, educational, governmental) are
under threat by pending legislation in the House and Senate.

Community Access TV is a place to see and hear local viewpoints and diverse ideas and cultural expressions. This is where every person can express themselves through the making and airing of their own television show.

Nowadays commercial media interests sometimes argue that we don't need Community Access TV anymore because there are lots of commercial channels to choose from. This is like arguing that because a town has a bookstore it no longer needs a public library. As the media becomes a bigger part of our lives the public needs more Community Access TV (and other forms of non-...

MNN Launches New Themed Channels

By Manhattan Neighborhood Network

 

 

In the spring, we will revamp our four channels to reach broader audiences and allow viewers greater ease of find shows by interest. Each channel will have its own flavor and identity, but still exhibit a broad range of programming:

 

 

TWC 34/RCN 83: COMMUNITY -What do our communities have to say?
TWC 56/RCN 84: LIFESTYLES -What informs, entertains, and expresses us?
TWC 57/RCN 85: SPIRIT -What encourages, inspires, and provides us with reflection and personal growth?
TWC 67/RCN 86: CULTURE -What are culture and history, and how do they unite us as people?

Since our programming is just as eclectic and diverse as the people who create it, it is important to note that many of the themes will overlap within these four channels. These changes are being made not to limit or categorize our voices, but make it easier for viewers to tune in to hear what we have to say!
