What is Bandwidth?
Bandwidth is CCTV's local music project.Our goal is to gather a library of great music for our video producers and our channels while obeying copyright law, connecting creative people, and giving local musicians more exposure. Local musicians can submit their work to be a part of the Bandwidth music library by following the steps listed below. All use will be strictly non-commercial and every video producer who uses music from the Bandwidth library will be required to give full credit to the artist(s).
How it Works: for Artists, Bands, Composers
To submit your music to the Bandwidth library.
- Download the agreement form (PDF).
- Familiarize yourself with the terms and complete the form.
- Return the form by mail or in person to Bandwidth c/o CCTV, along with an audio CD.
Your music will be added to our indexed collection that is available for CCTV members to use in their video productions. Producers are required to give full credit information for any songs/compositions they use. Selections from the Bandwidth library may also be included in an audio channel that plays in-between programs on all three cable channels.
