PADNET is a program of the Long Beach Community Action Partnership

The Public Access Digital Network (PADNET) is Long Beach’s community media center and public access television station (Charter 32 / Frontier 41).

Through our media centers, we empower Long Beach residents with high-quality resources and training so they can create their own news, information, and entertainment programming that fosters pride and engagement in our community

Our public access channel is one of the few remaining of its kind in the state. Read more about the history of PADNET on the Long Beach Community Action Partnership website.
