To get an already-made, not-for-profit community program on PCTV’s public access channel, Access Pittsfield, you must reside in Pittsfield or have someone from Pittsfield agree to be the ‘Producer of Record.’ All program content is the responsibility of the producer, and must meet the programming rules shown in our full Operating Rules & Procedures. There is no cost for placing a program on the air in this fashion. Once the show is accepted, the producer must sign a Producer Program Agreement Form.
If you would like to create a program at PCTV, you will need to live or work in Pittsfield, or be retired from working in Pittsfield, and sign up as a member. After you sign up, you will have to schedule training to learn the equipment (studio, portable, editing, etc., depending on the type of show you would like to make). At this point you will have the tools to become a show producer.
