Our Mission Statement:

To effectively communicate to the public relevant information concerning municipal and related governmental and community services.

In December 2013, Houston Television (HTV) moved from its previous accomodations at 3100 Main, where it shared space with Houston Community College Television (HCCTV), into a multi-faceted production facility on the first floor of City Hall at 901 Bagby. HTV cablecasts 24/7 and runs live programs in the form of City Council plus committee and commissions involving Budget and Fiscal Affairs, and the Planning Department. The City currently has four Public, Educational, and Governmental (PEG) access channels. Public Access Channel, HMS-TV, operated by Houston Media Source, Education Channels, HCC-TV, operated by Houston Community College, HISD-TV, operated by Houston Independent School District, and the Government Channel, HTV- operated by Houston Television. HTV provides LIVE coverage of Houston City Council meetings, Council Committee meetings, Budget and Fiscal Affairs, Planning Department and several other meetings which keeps citizens informed about their City government. HTV works with elected officials and City departments in promoting local events in their districts and provides information about municipal services and other initiatives through its production and programming assets. HTV is also a multi-faceted production facility and is available for rentals to citizens who are looking to produce programs, music videos or commercials.
