Our story:
TV1, Bell Canada’s community TV network

TV1 is dedicated to delivering original content, made from the community and by the community. Proud of being your destination for local programming, showcasing unique stories and experiences.

Our goal:
To give a voice to and celebrate local stories.

TV1 gives a unique look at the people and places that shape our communities. As a result, smaller regions are given the spotlight, allowing their creative voices to be heard and for their stories to be seen. This also gives the opportunity for the shows to be produced by local and passionate visionaries with the goal of showcasing communities to a wider audience.
