Millbrae Community Television is a nonprofit organization operating as a PEG center or Public, Education and Government station. It manages the North Peninsula Community Media Center, which provides low-cost technology training and video production services. There are approximately 2,000 media centers across the country, many are the result of local governments collecting franchise fees from cable companies that operate within their boundaries. This important telecommunication resource is administered for the public by a non-profit board of directors representing the community and funded in part by a small portion of the cable franchise agreements that cable companies have with the City of Millbrae. The Media Center allows local channels and the public to share resources and provide affordable access to cablecast local television and new media via the Internet.
