Member Levels and Perks

Attention New and Renewing Members!

CLICK HERE for the CreaTV San Jose Membership Registration Form.

CreaTV San Jose invites the residents, organizations and businesses of San Jose to support our mission through membership. Members can take advantage of the video production facilities, equipment and media training available at our community media center in downtown San Jose.

Members have access to everything needed to make a non-commercial video for CreaTV’s Cable access and web channels. Airtime is free.
