About Access 21

Access 21 LogoThe Charlotte Mecklenburg Public Access Corporation (CMPAC) is a private, non-profit corporation that was incorporated in May of 2000 for the purpose of operating the public access channel (Access 21) on the Time Warner cable system serving Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte.

Our mission is to provide facilities and education that welcome and accommodate individuals to create and submit programming that expresses diverse opinions, talents, activities and interests in the Charlotte metropolitan area through non-commercial open access television.

Our goal is to make Access 21 one of the leading public access channels in the country. We are "The People's Voice" In the community and that voice will be one of which all Mecklenburg County residents can be proud.
