Deep Dish TV

Deep Dish TV is the first national satellite network linking local access producers and programmers, independent video makers, activists, and other individuals who support the idea and reality of a progressive television network.

While commercial networks present a homogeneous and one-dimensional view of society, Deep Dish TV thrives on diversity. Instead of television that encourages passivity, deep dish distributes creative programming that educates and activates.

Deep Dish TV programs are shown on over 200 cable systems around the country, as well as selected public television stations, and received by thousands of satellite dish viewers nationwide. They are also used by teachers and community groups for group screenings and discussion.
