Southwest Community Television

Southwest Community TelevisionThe Southwest Suburban Cable Commission represents the cities of Eden Prairie, Edina, Hopkins, Minnetonka and Richfield, and manages the public, educational and governmental (PEG) access channels available to CenturyLink and Comcast cable television subscribers.

The playback of educational and public access programming for Southwest Suburban Cable Commission member cities — called Southwest Community Television — is coordinated by the City of Edina and its community television administrator.

Cable subscribers can view the educational access channel on channel 14. Programming is produced by the six school districts in the commission’s service footprint area — Eden Prairie, Edina, Hopkins, Minnetonka, Richfield and Wayzata.

The public access channel is channel 15. Any producer living in the five cities can submit content for the channel. Residents of Eden Prairie, Edina, Hopkins, Minnetonka and Richfield can sponsor programming produced by a non-resident.

There is a public access television production facility in Bloomington that serves the Southwest Suburban Cable Commission member cities. For more information about this facility, contact:
