Television Montana (TVMT)

Uniting People & Government through the Power of Television

Television Montana (TVMT) is a statewide television channel that provides gavel-to-gavel unedited coverage of legislative proceedings, both during and between sessions of the Legislature. Select activities of other agencies of state government are also covered on Television Montana (TVMT.)

Helena Civic Television (HCTV) is responsible for providing coverage of the upcoming 2017 Legislative Session. They provide the public-private partnership we know as TVMT to provide reliable, high quality telecasts. TVMT is a team effort with a noble purpose — to make state government proceedings transparent and accountable to the citizen taxpayers of Montana.
