About us

Cape Town TV – known as CTV – is a non-profit, community-based television station aimed at the greater Cape Town metropolitan area. Founded by over 200 non-profit organisations in 2006, CTV is committed to providing community access to the powerful medium of television as a tool to promote human rights, social justice and community cultural development.

We believe that access to information and the ability to communicate are fundamental human rights in the information age.

Community television has a powerful role to play in community cultural development as a means of enabling alternatives to the cultural values imposed on communities by top-down and commercially driven forms of media.

Community television ensures that all citizens have access to the information and communication channels necessary to exercise their civic rights and responsibilities, to share political, cultural, artistic, spiritual, and individual expression, and to promote a culture of human rights.

CTV is committed to engaging a wide range of community perspectives, especially those of groups that have historically been marginalized; to build a sense of community and common purpose, to promote healing and tolerance and encourage communication across barriers of race, culture, physical ability, language, class, gender, age, and sexual orientation.

The channel provides opportunities for volunteers and interns who have video production skills to hone and develop their abilities in the exciting field of television production. It also provides opportunities for NGOs, community organizations, educational institutions, sports groups, and government to produce programming in partnership with video producers in order to inform, entertain, and educate the people of Cape Town.
