In 1981, the City of Vancouver and Clark County granted a joint franchise with Cox Cable to provide cable television services to households in Vancouver and unincorporated areas of Clark County. The franchise now extends to households throughout Clark County and its cities and is currently held by the Comcast Corporation.

As a provision of the franchise agreement, two channels were made available for exclusive use by the City of Vancouver and Clark County local governments, which gave birth to Clark/Vancouver Television (CVTV).

Both CVTV channels are programmed seven days a week, 24 hours a day with a variety of programming, including:

  • City Council meetings
  • Clark County Board of County Councilors meetings
  • Port of Vancouver Board meetings
  • C-TRAN Board meetings
  • Local election coverage, including the Video Voter's Guide
  • Short features about Clark County and Vancouver departments, programs and services and community events

Clark County residents with cable television service from Comcast can tune to channels 21 and 23 to view CVTV programming.

All programming is also available live or on demand at
