Superchannel is a project by the Danish artist collective Superflex. The channel is a network of independent channels run by people, local communities, and organisations that use streaming media for communication, discussion and presentation.

We specialise in supporting existing cultural, social and political networks who want to use internet-tv as a supplementing media to communicate and create awareness around activities, interests and professions.”
