Free Speech TV
Launched in 1995, Free Speech TV is an independent, publicly-supported, non-profit based in Denver, CO. Using both television and the Internet, Free Speech TV inspires viewers to become civically engaged to build a more just, equitable, and sustainable society. Free Speech TV is owned and operated by Public Communicators, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit, tax-exempt organization, founded in 1974.
Free Speech TV is a national, independent news network committed to advancing progressive social change. As the alternative to television networks owned by billionaires, governments and corporations, our network amplifies underrepresented voices and those working on the front lines of social, economic and environmental justice.
Reaching over 40 million US television households via Dish, Direct TV, ROKU, and our online livestream, we bring our viewers an array of daily news programs, independent documentaries and special events coverage.
Daily News Programs: Our daily programs, including Democracy Now!, The Thom Hartmann Program and Uprising with Sonali, tackle the critical issues facing our communities and our democracy, giving you the news as it happens.
Independent Documentaries: Free Speech TV airs numerous award-winning documentaries covering issues ranging from economic injustice and marriage equality to climate change and the real cost of war.
Weekly Programs and Special Events: Free Speech TV viewers gain exclusive access to programs like #ABlackShow with Elon James White and Mike Papantonio’s Ring of Fire.
Free Speech TV is one of the last standing national independent news channels. As a nonprofit with freedom from corporate control and government pressure, we are uniquely positioned to elevate perspectives that often don’t break through the corporate media filter. We believe a more just and democratic world is possible when media empowers people with the information they need to fight for what matters.
