Local access is often also called Public, Educational, and Government (PEG) Access. In Westford the system is composed of three channels:
Comcast Channel 8 and Verizon Channel 35 is Public Access. This channel showcases programs developed by community members or programs from other towns that residents would like to see. Westford CAT can also produce programs. Live broadcasts of government meetings and meetings covered by Public Access Producers are also shown here.
Comcast Channel 99 and Verizon Channel 33 is Educational Access. This channel shows programs of educational interest. Tune in here to see programs produced by local schools too.
Comcast Channel 9 and Verizon Channel 34 is Government Access. This channel shows programs involving the local government in Westford including Board of Selectmen Meetings, School Committee Meetings and Planning Board Meetings.
Local access is also a resource for you to develop and express your ideas. You can also participate in productions by volunteering. There are many ways to participate, so whatever your interests are, there’s a way to develop them at Westford CAT.
