TVW is Washington's public affairs network, providing gavel-to-gavel coverage of Washington State Legislature sessions and coverage of the Washington State Supreme Court and public affairs events. It is widely considered the model state level equivalent of C-SPAN. TVW was founded in 1993 by Dennis Heck, who was formerly Chief of Staff to Governor Booth Gardner and who would later represent Washington in the United States House of Representatives.

The channel is available via cable throughout Washington state, and as a subchannel on Tacoma PBS member station KBTC.
