Submit Your Community Access Programming Ideas
We are pleased to accept completed shows and new show ideas. Connect to our program information guide which will assist you in submitting your program proposal and remember, Shaw is available to assist with the production if required. The community channel is a free service provided by Shaw Cablesystems and does not purchase television programming. There is no charge to you or your group to produce any local television or televise your event. Sponsorship revenues may be used to offset the cost of producing or televising your proposal or event. The community channel is focused on Metro Vancouver and its people, issues, arts and entertainment. Programming should reflect local viewpoints, activities and diverse voices that are not being heard.
