Public Access TV 5 is a grassroots, nonprofit community access television station carried on the Comcast cable system on Channel 5 in Vail, Avon, Beaver Creek, Minturn, Eagle Vail, Edwards, Wolcott and Cordillera.
Our roots stretch back to the early days of Vail, when several forward-thinking individuals saw the need for access television to provide transparent coverage of government meetings and a venue for political discourse.
We provide coverage of local government meetings and community events. We also offer the community access to video equipment, training, channel time and Internet video distribution so they may create programming based on topics they're passionate about then and share these productions with the community.
Our mission is to break down technical, physical and psychological barriers so Eagle County residents, students, nonprofits and governments can express their ideas to the community via television and the internet. Our goal is to accurately reflect, promote and strengthen the values of the community we serve. Channel 5 succeeds by providing video training, equipment, channel time and internet distribution to the community and for the community.
