Access Channel 5 has been providing programming that educates, entertains, informs and celebrates the best of our communities since June of 1995. This television station is very unique in Chautauqua County because of its local productions and programs. The success of Access Channel 5 all comes down to the many volunteers who have committed their time, talents and energy over the years to the running of this public access television station.
