Southwest Community Television

The Southwest Suburban Cable Commission represents the cities of Eden Prairie, Edina, Hopkins, Minnetonka and Richfield and manages the public, educational and governmental (PEG) access channels available to cable television subscribers.

As of Sept. 1, 2013, Comcast no longer manages the playback of educational and public access programming for Southwest Community Television. The playback is coordinated by the City of Edina and its Community Television Administrator.

On Dec. 15, 2015, CenturyLink was granted a cable franchise agreement by the Edina City Council creating two cable television service providers within the City of Edina. If you are interested in ordering cable television service, links to each providers' website are below:
