The main similarity between public access and public broadcasting is that both are non-commercial. However, unlike public broadcasting; public access television is television programming for the community, made by members of the community. Public access is a way for everyday people to create television programs that allow them to express their ideas and beliefs without fear of censorship.
The experience levels of our producers vary from novice to professional, and this of course affects the final product. Most of our producers are not professionals, and produce these programs in their spare time. They concentrate on the message, not the medium. This does sometimes make for a less than perfect look or sound, but all programs do meet our technical standards.
