SF Commons 29

Channel 29 is public access television in its purest sense – individual Producers give their completed shows to SF Commons staff and we program the shows to Producers’ designated timeslots. This channel is in the hands of our Producers.

What is SF Commons?

SF Commons is San Francisco Public Access television, housed at BAVC since 2009. Through a grant agreement with the City Department of Technology, SF Commons is able to provide access to video equipment, a television studio, low-cost trainings and a time-slot on cable TV for any current city resident who wants to produce a show. In conjunction with SFGOVTV and EATV, we provide public, educational, and government television services for San Francisco residents, ensuring that locally-produced, non-commercial media remains an essential component to free expression and engagement at a local level.
