Community Channel is the only TV station totally dedicated to highlighting issues from both local and international communities as well as the voluntary and charitable sectors.

At Community Channel we want you to pause for a moment and think about the world around you. We're all about inspiring you to take action on the causes and issues that matter to you. Broadcasting original programmes that showcase the work of new directors and community filmmakers, as well as the very best of terrestrial TV, Community Channel is the place for real-life stories.

Community Channel was launched in September 2000, broadcasting for three hours each day and mainly showing charity advertisements and selling charity merchandise. We've come a long way since then.

Where and when can I watch?

The channel broadcasts 24/7 on Virgin 269, Sky 539 and Freesat 164. We're also on Freeview 63 (available 4am-noon). Community Channel is also available on BT Vision, BBC iPlayer, TVGuide and TVPlayer. You can also watch us on this website in our On Demand pages, and on our YouTube channel CommunityChannelTV.

How do I get in touch?

The Community Channel team loves to hear from its viewers, so do get in touch! If you'd like more information on our programming, the charities and organisations involved.
