Current TV // About Current

The Down Low
Current is a global television network that gives you the opportunity to create and influence what airs on TV.

Current is about what's going on: stories from the real world, told by you.

We slice our schedule into short segments that we call "pods" — each just a few minutes long. You'll see profiles of interesting people on the rise, intelligence on trends as they spring up around us, and international news from new perspectives.

And much of it comes straight from you.

We call it viewer-created content, or VC2. Right now, VC2 makes up about a third of our channel — and that share is growing.

It works like this:

Anyone who wants to contribute can upload a video. Then, everyone in the Current online community helps decide what should be on TV. You can join in at either stage — watch & vote or make video. (We've also got online training to help you get the skills you need to make TV!)

This is definitely not a traditional TV network. Watching Current, you'll see more, on more topics, from more points of view.

But if we're going to succeed, we need you to do more than watch; we need you to jump in and participate.

Here are all the ways to get started:

* Watch a sample of our TV programming
* Check out our full schedule for a look at what's on TV
* Dive into the Watch & Vote section
* Meet others on our message boards
* Read our FAQ for answers to more questions
