Buy your own TV channel

A popular UK TV channel for stories from ‘people who make society better for us all every day’, is offering its viewers the chance to own a stake in it, in an effort to empower communities
A popular national TV channel is set to become the “first people-owned TV brand for social change” by offering members of the public the chance to own a stake in the business.

The Community Channel, which launched in 2000 to give charities and communities a platform for their content and to give a voice to new media talent, is offering ‘community shares’ through crowdfunding platform Crowdfunder.co.uk. Encouraging people to not just change the channel but own it, Community Channel’s aim is to turn passive TV viewing into active participation and ownership.
