PEISH TV was a cable television channel based in Hornell, New York, and was seen in that community on Time Warner Cable channel 99. It was owned by Peish Video Productions, and founded by its owner, Robert Peisher.

Created in 1992 under the name MCTV (Maple City Television), PEISH TV carried local interest programming, news, sports, and entertainment.

In 1998, MCTV changed its name to PEISH TV, named after Peisher. That same year, PEISH TV became an affiliate of the UPN Television Network. PEISH TV carried UPN until the debut of The CW network (currently seen locally on WENY-DT3) in September 2006. After the closure of UPN, PEISH TV became a full-time affiliate of the America One Television Network. It is unknown, however, if PEISH TV held secondary affiliations with America One during its days as a UPN affiliate, or before joining UPN.

PEISH TV announced plans to expand its programming to cable systems throughout the Elmira market, beginning January 2007.

However, the fate of PEISH TV is unknown—as of April 2008, tvguide.com listings for Time Warner in Hornell have no listings for PEISH TV, or anything on channel 99. Listings for Elmira yield similar results. It is assumed that PEISH TV has folded.
