List of public-access TV stations in the United States (Utah–Wyoming)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In the United States, every community that is served by one or more cable TV companies has the right to collect a Cable television franchise fee, based on the Cable Communications Act of 1984 Section 622, from those cable companies to fund a public-access television cable TV channel. In addition, the cable television companies must make public, educational, and government access (PEG) channels available for the public-access organization to distribute the locally originated Nonprofit organization's programming produced by or made available to the organization.[citation needed]

This list was initiated based on a list of public-access stations listed by Alliance for Community Media (ACM), with some defunct organizations removed. The distribution of organizations here does not always correlate to population; for example, although California has the most stations listed, Michigan and Minnesota each have more stations than New York.

Charter Type: P = Public-access television E = Educational-access television G = Government-access television
