The People’s Channel
What exactly is The People’s Channel?
The People’s Channel is a community access channel available exclusively via Time Warner Cable in the Durham and Chapel Hill markets. As a community-based media nonprofit, our primary goal is to educate and strengthen the bond of the Triangle community, particularly in the areas of The arts, education, entertainment and local businesses. TPC offers a resource for all community members to have low-cost access to television production and ensure effective uses of community media.
How do you seek to do this?
We offer the community an opportunity to learn, create and watch locally created media content. Members of the Triangle community can become a People’s Channel member for $50/year, providing access to classes aimed at video and media production, access to production facilities and airtime access to broadcast production creations. It’s a fantastic resource for staying current with community organizations, area entertainment, museums and more. The People’s Channel offers full-scale production services for Triangle-based nonprofits, small businesses, and community organizations.
Membership supports local media, keeping community filming services low. As a paid member ($50/year), users have access to a weekly time slot, access to equipment certification classes, studio and equipment access.
