What is Chelmsford TeleMedia?
Like our tagline says, Chelmsford TeleMedia is "Chelmsford's Own TV Station." We're an actual cable broadcaster run, in effect, by you – the citizens of Chelmsford. You make the programs. We just help you do it.
We're also charged with bringing you vital government meetings. But, we're not part of the town's government. We're an independent, 501(c)3 corporation funded in full by revenues generated by Comcast cable and Verizon FiOS subscribers. (You see this amount, noted as an "access fee," on your monthly bill.)
We also have a relationship with the Chelmsford Public Schools. They administer one of our channels where you'll find programming about eductional and other school events.
Anyone who lives or works in Chelmsford is eligible to be a member of Chelmsford TeleMedia's nonprofit corporation. (Inquire at the studio for details.) The corporation's annual meeting is held in December.
Our activities are managed by a Board of Directors, chosen to staggered three-year terms from the corporation's members.
