Public Access Television Returns to Long Beach!

Mar. 2, 2013 / By

 Charter Channel 32 & Verizon Channel 41


The Long Beach Public Access Digital Network’s (PADNET) mission is to empower Long Beach residents with quality resources to create and share locally produced news, information and entertainment that fosters community pride and civic engagement.

Any Long Beach resident can become a member and utilize our facilities to access quality media training and all the tools necessary to produce locally created television programs – by and for the City of Long Beach.


THE FIRST STEP for anyone to get involved with PADNET is to attend a free PADNET Orientation. Once you have attended Orientation, you can sign up to be a member. Any resident of Long Beach is eligible for a membership with PADNET.
Upcoming Orientations:
Monday, March 4th, 2013, 12pm-1:30pm
Monday, March 18th, 2013 6pm-7:30pm
  All orientations are held at the PADNET office,
located at the Long Beach Community Action Partnership:
3012 Long Beach Blvd. Long Beach, CA 90807 

Members are eligible to submit programming for playback by filling out the Playback Request Form. Members will also be able to use the facilities and equipment at PADNET with proper certification.


1. Attend a free PADNET orientation

2. Fill out the membership form and sign the Statement of Compliance form (available here and at the Orientation)

3. You can sign up for a membership at orientation or you can bring us your completed forms with a check or money order (no cash, please!) made out to: Long Beach Community Action Partnership

Do you live outside of Long Beach but still want to submit content to PADNET? You can have a member of PADNET “sponsor” the content for you. The member would be submitting the content as if it were their own, assuming all responsibility and liability. This arrangement is between the individual member producer and the person who wishes to submit content. PADNET does not arrange sponsorships. Member generated content has scheduling priority over member “sponsored” content.


A community television station is not just about producing media; it is about building community. Volunteers and interns are an important part of this! Please contact us at [email protected] for more information.
