The station is registered with Ofcom as Chelsea Digital Media Ltd. Chelsea TV broadcasts live everyday from 7am to 2am from the studios at Stamford Bridge. The channel broadcasts youth and Under-21 team matches, hosts fan phone-ins, and carries news items and interviews with Chelsea players.

The show regulary has first team players join the phone-in. Pre-Match at the Bridge precedes all home matches whilst Wherever They May Be, typically hosted by Cundy alongside two former Chelsea players, covers the build-up to away games.

Live build-up to midweek games is on Matchnight Live which broadcasts from 6.30pm and has previews to the game, team news and analysis. Chelsea TV also broadcasts Chelsea Under-21 and Youth Teams matches with every FA Youth Cup match shown live, and from the start of the 2015-16 season the club extended the coverage to include live broadcasts of Under-18 league matches on Saturday mornings on

Blues News is a daily news programme with headlines at 1pm and 5pm followed by a full news bulletin at 6.30pm and 10pm with a host of other magazine-style shows and series shown throughout the year.

Chelsea matches are mainly commentated by Ben Andrews (who hosted the 2007 League Cup Final, 2007 FA Cup Final and 2008 UEFA Champions League Final), Matt Davies, Dan Roebuck and Gary Taphouse.
