MVTV is your island Television Station.
Martha’s Vineyard Community Television is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that is controlled and operated by island residents. MVTV consists of not one but three channels, a cable-access model familiarly known as PEG (public, education, government).
Public, Education and Government access TV provides the public with access to the use of television, via the cable television network, as a way to reach other members of their community and to learn more about digital technology.
Cameras, editing equipment, and technical direction are made available to members of the community through an agreement with the cable service provider which, in Martha’s Vineyard’s case, is Comcast.
MVTV, Channel 13, the Public Channel is the home for community members to showcase their arts, talents, opinions, news information and so much more. Island residents can create any kind of programming they want, whether it be sharing a special interest or educating the community on local historical or environmental issues, or even entertainment with an artistic or musical program.
We have a State of the Art Television station that includes a main studio, a video podcast station, a kitchen fully equipped for producing cooking shows for limitless ideas! And even more instrumental, Local Emergency Alerts are also cablecast on Channel 13.
