Indigenous Community Television (ICTV) is an independent, not for profit organization. Our Core purpose is to improve the livelihoods of Indigenous Australian through the creation of media distribution outlets that enable the active sharing of stories, culture, language and the provision of essential information.
ICTV strives to provide an open forum to promote and celebrate remote Indigenous talent, culture, languages, history and innovation. ICTV programming is produced in the languages of its contributors and through its diverse slate of material is working to remedy the lack of targeted media and communications for indigenous communities. ICTV’s achievements have been recognized for the very real benefits it brings to a host of remote community endeavours including vocational education and training, health, community development, employment and enterprise.
ICTV’s television programming can be viewed on Channel 601 on the VAST satellite service. Alternatively many of the programs that play on ICTV are also available to view through IndigiTUBE.
ICTV is funded by the Indigenous Broadcast Program which comes under the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
