"Giving Tuesday" starts the Holiday Giving Season. Please consider helping us grow Marin TV as a vital source for local media!
The Community Media Center of Marin has been working hard for over 7 years, starting as a scrappy DIY Media Center to become an increasingly vital resource to the residents of Marin. With our Marin TV channels, we are an enabler for government transparency, bringing your local and county government officials right into your living room. Our educational channel gives you learning resources you can’t get elsewhere and provides our schools and students a vehicle for sharing their projects with the community. Our community channel gives everyone in Marin a voice without the threat of censorship. It’s truly the only First Amendment TV. And our media center gives all residents the training they need to produce their own programs with free access to the tools of production and distribution. The center also provides a space where Marin artists come to share their work, films, and voices with the community.

More work ahead! We brought the Community Channel 26 online last night and it is now playing out the regular program schedule. Still many tweaks to be done to encoder/scalers along the signal path to refine the image quality. We should have Channel 27/30 back to their normal schedules later today.
November 16, 2016 8:00 AM UPDATE
We worked late into the night but haven't yet brought the new system online. There will continue to be interruptions to the normal schedule throughout the day as we transfer files, test and configure the setup. Hopefully there will be a return to normal programming this evening. We appreciate your patience! Note: Live government meetings will play at their scheduled times and the Government Channel 27 remains on the same schedule as usual.
November 15, 2016 UPDATE
We are rolling over the Marin TV cable channels to new servers this afternoon. Expect some disruptions to the programming schedule as we do this. We hope to have things as close to normal as soon as possible. Tweaks and tests will continue throughout the week.
