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.

Public Access Programming
The cities served by Southwest Community Television (SWTV) have a partnership with Bloomington Community Access Television (BCAT) which provides free studio access for residents to create their own video productions. Although the studio space is free to use, residents must go through training and schedule production time.

Several video production classes and workshops are offered at BCAT throughout the year, including a summer Teen Video Boot Camp. Learn more about BCAT resources available to SWTV residents.
