Redlands TV

Redlands TV is a government access cable channel with programming generated from Redlands City Hall. Programming includes City Council and Planning Commission meetings and select special events either sponsored or co-sponsored by the City; and informational videos highlighting city services and programs. Redlands TV is available to cable television subscribers through Spectrum cable (Channel 3) or Frontier cable (Channel 35) services.

City Council and Planning Commission meetings are televised live on Tuesdays and replayed the following Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. and Thursday evening at 6 p.m. Informational videos are televised hourly whenever a meeting or other special event is not scheduled.

Redlands TV also provides a Community Events Bulletin Board, listing public service messages, that runs whenever video segments are not on the air. This service is free for government, school and non-profit organizations serving the City of Redlands. To display your group’s event on Redlands TV’s Community Bulletin Board, contact Cheryl Williams at or call her at (909) 335-4736.
