CAN TV is an independent nonprofit established by the City of Chicago in 1983 as the public’s space on cable television free of commercials, filters, and censors.

On our five local channels you can see the diversity of people and ideas that reflect Chicago, including voices often excluded from the mainstream media.

The city where neighbors can freely share their passions and talents with one another is the city that works better.  For everyone.

So step up, sign up, make, watch, and support the people’s network in Chicago.
