Knowing your neighbors and being able to share in their everyday joys and triumphs helps a community thrive and grow.

The Minneapolis Telecommunications Network
is your media access zone

Located in the heart of North East Minneapolis, with studio facilities in the Thorp Building, MTN gives voice to every resident of the city and connects us to our community. We offer regular media training to anyone interested in harnessing the connective power of media to say something about the city we live in and love.

To this end, MTN broadcasts community-based, community-focused programming—24 hours a day, 7 days a week—on our three channels on the local Comcast Cable network. Each of MTN's channels has its own unique focus.


Channel 16 (The Connect Network) offers community affairs programming, news & information, public discussion, politics & government.


Channel 17 (The Create Network) is home to cultural and educational programming made by local artists & creatives and by MTN's vibrant Youth Programs.


Channel 75 (The Inspire Network) features a diverse array of religions and spiritual programming from around the region.


MTN's community-focused programming is created by members of the community just like you.
