DescriptionSince its founding in 1999, Link TV has been providing a unique perspective on international news, current events, and diverse cultures, presenting issues not often covered in the US media. Through our national network and websites (LinkTV.org, ViewChange.org, and News.LinkTV.org), we connect American viewers with people at the heart of breaking events, organizations in the forefront of social change and the cultures of an increasingly global community.
Link TV is operated by KCETLink, the national independent public transmedia organization formed by the December 2012 merger between the Los Angeles-based public television station KCET and Link Media. A viewer-supported 501c(3) organization, KCETLink content is distributed nationally via satellite on DIRECTV channel 375 and DISH Network channel 9410, in Southern and Central California via broadcast, as well as via various digital delivery systems.
