Based in one of the most affluent communities in the United States, Rancho Palos Verdes RPVtv produces some of the best local origination television programs anywhere. Much like NY1 or COX4 San Diego, RPVtv produces broadcast quality programming with both local and global content. The RPVtv Logo is recognized all across the state.
What makes our programming different and memorable?
The actual programs. Lets face it, there are a million cable channels to watch but we hand select our programs to air. We provide valuable air time which allows us to air long format programs. That means more behind the scenes and more stories about people. Our producers have years of experience working in news, sports, music, film, television and radio. Where you may only see only thirty seconds to three minutes of a story on another channel, we have the resources to tell more of someoneâ€™s story than ever before. We also air shows multiple times allowing the viewers to see a story more than once.
