About Us


Community Access Television is an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation authorized by the City of Erie to administer the public access channel on Spectrum, Channel 1021, formerly Time Warner Cable, Channel 2. The first two words in our name say it all. We are here to provide our community access to mass media. There is no other source of low-cost community programming that has the potential to reach as many people in Erie. Community Access Television gives people and organizations the tools that they need to get their unique messages across to their intended audiences.
