Cable-access TV in Minnesota: complete links

Here are all the cable-access community television stations in Minnesota (what I could find on the web as of May, 2007, anyway). Note that Minneapolis/St. Paul and surrounding suburbs have a slew of them--Twin Cities stations include AFRCC, BCAT, BECT, CCTV, CTN, CTV, ETC, FCTV, FMT, HCTV, LCTC, LMCC, MCN, MTN, NDC4, North Metro TV, NWCT, QCTV, SCC, SLPTV, Shakopee, SPNN, and VACTV. With cheaper and improved technology, it's easier than ever for anyone in this state to pick up a camera and go make your own television. It couldn't be worse than what's on.
