Steve Says

Urgent from MVTV: A Call to Action! 

Public Access funding is under threat due to an impending possible FCC rule change. If this rule passes, most or all of our funding could end. We urge you to send a comment opposing this to the FCC.  

Please go to and take a few minutes to send a form letter to the FCC chairman to protest this rule change!



One of our producers has integrated Skype into their show and right now we are testing out how well this technology works for other producers interested in ‘reaching out’ to their audience. Stop by and talk with Carl about the possibilities afforded by Skype, FaceTime, and YouTube to extend your MVTV productions off island — without the SSA!

Call Carl at 508-696-9760 or stop by and ask for a tour!



Michelle is back in the saddle and ready to roll! The holiday season is upon us and MVTV is excited to move forward in the New Year! There will be new collaborations at the Edgartown School as well as MVRHS.

Look forward to new programming in the kitchen as well! We have three new producers that are ready to cook up some great recipes!
