What is Public Access TV?

    Public access television is traditionally a form of non-commercial mass media where the general public can create content television programming that is narrowcast through cable TV specialty channels. 

    Public access television was created in the United States between 1969 and 1971 by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It's often grouped with public, educational, and government access television channels, under the acronym PEG. PEG channels are on cable television systems.
