Let us know your thoughts on Public Access TV!

In January, the Longmont City Council approved a contract with Longmont Public Media to provide Public, Educational and Governmental video services for the community (you may know them as Channel 8). It has been six months, and we are looking for your feedback on your watching habits and the content provided by Longmont Public Media.

Take our 5 minute survey and add ideas to the Idea Board (and like the ones you see from others too) below!

    In Longmont, as part of the franchise agreement with Comcast that gave them the ability to use the community’s right-of-way for their cable wires, they pay a fee to the City, in addition to PEG fees charged to every subscriber.  PEG fees can only fund capital expenses (stuff, not people) and are granted to our current Public Access TV provider, the Longmont Cable Trust, in addition to 25% of the franchise fees (about $155,000) that can be used for operating expenses (people and stuff). 

    These services are currently provided by Longmont Public Media and broadcasted on Comcast Channels 8, 14, 16, 880 HD, Layer 3 TV, and on their website – https://longmontpublicmedia.org. Today we are interested in hearing input from the community on the desired outcomes, objectives and needs from the community. Your feedback will inform Council on any desired changes in future contracts.
