   Did you know that you can BE the media? We recently started offering "Train the Trainer" media production workshops for our volunteers and staff, and would like to invite all community members to participate. They are being held on the 4th Thursday of each month from 6 - 7pm. The next one will be on Thursday, April 27th, when we will be covering basic TV Studio production set-up & technique. We will go over setting up & framing camera shots, putting on microphones, setting lights, and using the intercom and "talk back" systems. Everyone is invited! RSVP by sending a quick email.

Are you interested in coming to an orientation or workshop on a different day or time? We offer them on Tuesdays & Thursdays. Sign up here.

We are now on VTel!

Fri, 03/10/2017 - 16:29 -- Patrick

We are pleased to announce that its two TV channels can now be found on VTel’s “VTelevision”. The programming can be seen throughout the VTel service area in Southern Vermont. This includes subscribers in the Towns for which LPCTV is designated to serve:  Mount Holly, Plymouth, Andover, & Reading. Examples of relevant programming for this audience include coverage of community events, “gavel-to-gavel” coverage of local government meetings, music and other performances from local artists, and programming produced for and by the local schools.

LPCTV’s local community “public access" channel can be found on VTel channel 160 and its education / government channel is on VTel 161. Both of these channels are in standard definition. In the near future, there will be the addition of HD channels, which means LPCTV’s programming will also be viewable in high definition on VTelevision.

Local Businesses Support Community TV through Underwriting

Tue, 01/03/2017 - 16:47 -- Patrick

LPCTV offers underwriting opportunities for local businesses who wish to show their support for local community television while taking advantage of a low-cost alternative or supplement to traditional advertising. In exchange for a tax-deductible charitable contribution, LPCTV will acknowledge each underwriter in its distribution of electronic and print media, including on the community bulletin board, and our website.

For more information about underwriting on LPCTV or to view sample "thank you" videos from the past year, visit lpctv.org/underwriting. You can also sign up right there on the site.

Here is a sample of a "thank you" video, which we produced for Heritage Family Credit Union, one of this year's underwriters:
