Cork Community Television is a community access TV Station on UPC Ireland channel 803, broadcasting programmes made by, about and for Cork communities.

It launched on 28 May 2009 and is available to over 200,000 households across Dublin, Limerick, Cork, Galway and Waterford.

Different groups will require different levels of support (i.e. some groups already have some equipment but need training, others are starting from scratch). Also some groups wish to be involved in physically producing the programmes themselves, others will wish to work with Community TV personnel to produce their programmes.

Cork Community TV assists members and member organisations to secure funding from the Sound and Vision "Community in a Studio" fund, which is generated from the TV licence fee and administered by the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland (BCI). The Sound and Vision fund is a grant scheme designed to support the production of new television and radio programmes in the areas of Irish culture, heritage and experience and adult literacy


Cork Community Television (CCTv) was established as a Company Limited by Guarantee (without share capital) in May 2007.
