Welcome to the Minneapolis Television Network! 

MTN is not an ordinary TV station.  MTN provides equipment, training, and channel time to residents and non-profit organizations in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. 

MTN is one of the thousands of community television centers (also known as public access or community access television) in the United States.  Community television is fundamentally different than commercial television.  Commercial television stations must get as many viewers as possible to watch programs so they can charge a high rate for advertisements.  Community television centers do not allow advertisements or information about products or services.  Community television producers are free to play programs for any number of interested viewers.

Please feel welcome to make programs about anything you care about!

Many talk about the importance of the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution, MTN does something about it!
