Program News

Richmond Police Beat topped MMCTV's Vimeo streaming plays over the past few weeks.

NOFA VT's Gregg Stevens has been polishing off several new programs, including one on Jr. Iron Chef.

Jacci Nelson of Jericho and the Lyme Disease Support Group of Northern Vermont has spearheaded the new video Lyme Disease: Are You Safe? which offers personal stories and tons of helpful advice.

MMCTV is starting to stream local meetings live. We started with the November 2nd Richmond Water/Sewer and Selectboard meetings and aim to gradually introduce this service into all three of our towns.

Thank You!!!

In October, access centers throughout Vermont, including MMCTV, reached out to supporters and the public for their opinions on cable service and public access in their areas. This was very important because the state's largest cable provider, Comcast, is up for the renewal of its Certificate of Public Good.

Thanks to many of you from joining in the dialogue through focus groups (R), surveys, a statewide public hearing, and letters.

MMCTV was proud that Mary Jane Dickerson, of Jericho, had the last word at the public hearing, speaking of the benefit of public access for nonprofits and community cultural life. Pointing to MMCTV's work coordinating the 10-part Poets & Craft lecture series videos she noted of us: "They are at
every event. They make sure they know what is going on."

If you have any opinions on the quality of cable and public access in your area provided, respectively, by Comcast and stations like MMCTV, please write to the Clerk of the Public Service Board  (email:
