Quad Cities Community Television is a programming entity managed by the Joint Powers Commission – Quad Cities Cable TV Commission whose Board of Directors is made up of 2 commissioners from each of our 4 member cities. QCTV provides information on government, high school sports and community activities for the northern Twin Cities suburban cities of Andover, Anoka, Champlin, and Ramsey. The video programming and information is presented via local cable channels 15, 16, and 19 on the cable TV system owned and operated by COMCAST.
What We Do For Our Communities:
Channel 16 is an exclusive government channel for each city we serve and provides cablecasts of local municipal meetings, City Council updates, and city sponsored events. In addition, these local channels display an electronic bulletin board containing information regarding ordinances, meeting times, council agendas, and the weekly playback schedule.
All four cities receive the same community channel 15 . This cable signal reaches more than 19,000 households and includes playback times, local news, high school sports, special community events, school board meetings, municipal reports, and Public Access programs. Informational channel 19 is a community electronic bulletin board that currently displays upcoming community events free of charge.
