East Bridgewater Community Television (EBCTV) is a non-profit corporation set up to oversee Public, educational, and government access (PEG) cable tv channels in the town of East Bridgewater, Massachusetts. EBCTV operates three public access channels on Comcast -- government access on channel 6, general public access on channel 9, and educational access on channel 98.


EBCTV provides community members and groups with:

  • Training and technical assistance in the uses of cable TV production and equipment
  • Access to production resources
  • Time on the appropriate EBCTV channel

Anyone may request airtime for the presentation of a pre-recorded non-commercial television program.

EBCTV also televises an electronic community bulletin board (CBB) when no television programming is presented, and public service announcements between programs.

Financing and organization[edit]

East Bridgewater Community Television is governed by a board of directors. EBCTV receives funding generated by a small percentage of Comcast subscriber revenue, but must rely on donations from local residents and businesses to fund its operation.
