Channel 31 (call sign CTN-31) was a free-to-air community television station in Sydney. The station began broadcasting in 1993 as Australia's first metropolitan community television station.[1]

The licence of its operator, Community Television Sydney, was revoked by the Australian Broadcasting Authority and given to rival Television Sydney in March 2004.[1] Channel 31's licence was temporarily extended pending a federal court hearing on the issue, but the station ultimately ceased operations at midnight on 23 April 2004.[citation needed]
