Cambridge Community Television operates three cable television channels, Comcast Channels 8, 9, & 96, in Cambridge, MA. Residents and members may sign up for and submit programs to be shown to the over 35,000 cable-subscribing households in Cambridge. Following are the options for signing up for and submitting programs to CCTV:
Two Pre-Recorded Programming Options
CCTV will accept pre-recorded program submissions as either single or series programs:
- Single programs are stand alone programs that are scheduled according to time slot availability on a short-term basis.
- Series programs are a number of episodes of the same program that are shown in a fixed time-slot across many months, and at least one new episode must be submitted per month. The series contract and time slot lasts until January of the following year, when the time-slot may be changed at CCTV's discretion.
If you are a Cambridge Resident
You may submit one single per year for free without signing up for a membership by filling out a Cablecast Request Form and submitting it with your media to CCTV's Programming Coordinator, Lily Bouvier, via mail, email, or in person by stopping by the station. If you would like to submit a series or more than one single program per year, you must sign up for either an Affiliate Membership or an Access Membership.
If you are Not a Cambridge Resident
You must sign up for an Affiliate Membership and fill out and submit a Cablecast Request Form along with your media via mail, email, or stopping by the station.
