Link TV uses media and the power of stories to engage, educate, and activate viewers to become involved in the world. Founded in 1999, Link TV national network and websites (Linktv.org, Viewchange.org, and News.Linktv.org) provide a unique perspective on international news, current events, and diverse cultures, presenting issues not often covered in the US media. We connect American viewers with people at the heart of breaking events, organizations in the forefront of social change and the cultures of an increasingly global community.
Link TV is operated by KCETLink, the national independent public transmedia organization formed by the December 2012 merger between KCET and Link Media. A viewer-supported 501c(3) organization, its content is distributed nationally via satellite on DirecTV 375 and DISH 9410, in Southern and Central California via broadcast, as well as via various digital delivery systems. KCET and Link TV are services of KCETLink. For additional information about KCETLink productions, web-exclusive content, programming schedules and community events, please visit KCET.org or LinkTV.org.
In most cases, a financial contribution is the best way to help us empower viewers to take action to make a difference in critical issues around the world, from human rights abuses to environmental sustainability. You can make an impact on the world. Please support Link TV now!
