Fairfax Public Access

Fairfax Public Access

Fairfax Public Access (FPA) was established in October 1981 as a non-profit public-access cable-tv station based in Fairfax, Virginia, and now operates three channels.

In 1984, FPA operations came under the Cable Franchise Policy and Communications Act, which required US cable companies to fund local organizations which would provide training and access to media technology to the general public. Cable companies were also required to carry the programming created by those local organizations.

Fairfax Cable Access Corporation was formed in 1997 to maintain ownership for the public.

In 2004, FPA switched from analog to all-digital, and now operates Channel 10 for general purpose television shows in English, Channel 30 for general purpose television shows in languages other than English, and Channel 37 for cable-cast radio. In addition, FPA provides Internet-streaming for its radio broadcasting.
