Our Quarterly Update - April 2022

BCATv is a 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated in 2005 currently operating 3 cable television channels for the enjoyment of the residents of Boxford.  Our funding comes from a small access fee on each cable subscriber's monthly cable bill.

Our Government Channel, Comcast Ch 8 / Verizon Ch 39, records and plays back most Boxford government meetings.  Many of the meetings are broadcast live whenever possible. We have been providing this service since our incorporation over 15 years ago.

Our Educational channel, Comcast 99 / Verizon 40, is oriented towards Masconomet events.  Currently Masco spring sporting events, concerts, special events and Class of 2022 events are being featured with most being broadcast live on our website streaming channel.

Our Public Access channel, Comcast Ch 8 / Verizon Ch 45, covers other Boxford events not mentioned above, such as youth sports, local concerts, Memorial and July 4th Parades, BAA Men's Softball starting mid-June, etc.

The homepage of our website, www.BoxfordCableTv.com, lists links to all the upcoming live streaming events for the next 10 days.  In addition, there is a TV Schedules link and an Upcoming Events link on our home page which provide a quick way to see what is going on in Boxford over the upcoming 10 days. 

Further down on our homepage is our Video On Demand (VOD) widget, which allows residents to playback previously recorded event videos and even download them as desired.  There are also links to other websites of specific interest to the residents of Boxford.

In summary BCATv strives to strengthen our community by increasing and enhancing communication among our residents via our website and our 3 local cable access television stations.
