With your support, Knowledge can continue offering a trusted alternative for the commercial-free exploration of life. Educational children's programming, thought-provoking documentaries, extraordinary arts and culture programs and acclaimed dramas - all made available for you on-air and online by Knowledge Network.



Commercial-free BC

Within our multichannel universe, Knowledge is a unique "green space" on television - a viewing sanctuary free from the congestion of commercials and the interruption of advertisers. It's a place that belongs to all British Columbians, by mandate and by design. Knowledge strives to provide programs that nurture the voices, values and experiences of BC communities.



Curiously Entertaining, Intelligent Television

All evening every evening, your support helps viewers explore the world and critical issues through  passionate, world-renowned documentaries. Our colourful lineup of arts and culture programming and acclaimed dramas nurture the spirit, enrich the mind, and may even put a skip in your step. Browse our programs or see what’s available online.

What a precious cultural treasure the Knowledge Network is, in that it allows us to explore the full depth and breadth of humanity in all its manifold beauty through the medium of television, which results in the deepest possible joy! - Adam, Maple Ridge


Knowledge: Kids

All day every day, your donation is passed on to young viewers through trusted, commercial-free programs that spark a child's imagination and love of learning. A resource for parents and communities, Knowledge: Kids on air and online is a top choice for BC children with content that reinforces important learning concepts such as numeracy and literacy through storytelling, rhyming, singing and more.

I just love your channel, especially for the kids... My kids don't need the violence or flashy lights that most kid shows have today. - Christina, Burnaby


Informed, Inspired Communities

Perhaps most importantly, your support can help build communities that are informed, compassionate and inspired. We believe that people who seek to learn, understand and share are people who will effect positive change in our neighbourhoods, our province and beyond.

Knowledge: Pass It On...

To have a world-class television station right here in BC is such a privilege. Thank you for always having something wonderful on around dinner time for families to watch together. - Diane, Vernon
