Sandwich Community Television
Sandwich Community Television is a 501©3 non-profit organization that provides communication among local residents and organizations by producing and broadcasting programs that focus on local people, issues and services in Sandwich and Cape Cod. We have three channels, on-line streaming, a radio station WSDH 91.5FM and a thriving broadcasting program and studio at Sandwich High School/STEM Academy.
Our channels are distinct in their creative content. Our three channels are: Public Access Channel which has myriad content, an Education channel for Sandwich Public Schools’ events and content created by the SHS Media Studio, and a designated Government channel which broadcasts all board of Selectmen meetings, Finance Committee and School Committee meetings-LIVE in a addition to state house content, other Sandwich town board meetings, and all Annual Town Meetings.
All of our programming is available on our website www.sandwichtv.org on our Video On Demand. We import programming from all over the country also through the MassAccess sharing server TELVUE Connect. Our programs can also be downloaded from Connect.
Check out our great programming on Vimeo or on our YouTube Channel too!
In the United States, every community that is served by one or more cable TV companies has the right to collect a cable television franchise fee, based on the Cable Communications Act of 1984 Section 622, from those cable companies to fund a Public-access television cable TV channel. In addition, if desired by the municipality, the cable television companies must make Public, educational, and government access (PEG) channels available for the public access entity to distribute the local programming.
