North Metro TV (NMTV) is the public access television production studio that serves the northern suburbs of Blaine, Centerville, Circle Pines, Ham Lake, Lexington, Lino Lakes, and Spring Lake Park.

The staff and volunteers of NMTV are committed to providing the residents of our seven cities access to television production training, equipment, and playback of community produced programs over the local cable system.

In addition to teaching the general public how to produce their own programs, NMTV has a production staff dedicated to covering local events such as community celebrations, high school sports, news events, elections, and many other items of interest to the northern suburbs.


NMTV provides many services to the community including internships for college and high school students, tours of the production facility, private video production instruction for school groups or organizations, underwriting opportunities for businesses, and some equipment rental and production services.
