Non-residents of Queens no longer need a sponsor or proxy to put a show on QPTV. That means anyone can reach out to the world’s most diverse community. Just give us a copy of your photo id and two proofs of residency. 

For over 30 years, QPTV has been essential in cultivating media in the Queens community.

QPTV offers not-for-profit organizations a free outlet to provide the community with Public Service Announcements highlighting the facets of the organization. The Public Service Announcements are produced as a 30 or 60 second production. The promo is taped at QPTV’s studio, edited, and the final product is cablecast throughout the day with events, news, and useful information.
