MVTV-3 Policy

Moreno Valley has its own cable television station inside City Hall - MVTV-3. Programming includes City Council and Planning Commission meetings and select special events either sponsored or co-sponsored by the City, a monthly news program, “News Center," and informational videos highlighting city services and programs.

MVTV-3 has a Community Events Bulletin Board, a computerized listing of public service messages, that runs whenever video segments are not on the air. This service is free for government, school and non-profit organizations.
