Public Access Television Stations and Media Centers

Public Access Television Stations

Public Access Television Stations are allowed under Section 611 of the Communications Act. The Federal Communications Commission or FCC regulates this law. It is important to recognize that Public Access Television Stations are not required by federal law, rather they are a right given to the franchising authority, which it may choose to exercise.

The following list of Public Access Television Stations and Media Centers has been very thoroughly checked, but the links may change. Please let us know of any errors or omissions. We’d like to include every single Public Access Station in the US. Help us make this a complete list of Public Access Television Stations.
