Bring Your Community Organization to HCAM!

As Hopkinton’s Community Access TV Station, HCAM is available in over 4200 Hopkinton homes (Verizon subscribers in Holliston, Medway, and Franklin also see HCAM). And the next question is; how many people watch channel 8? Well, the US Army produces a show called “Army Newswatch” which is seen on Access TV, and they did a survey which found that of homes receiving Access Television, over 75% watch regularly.

We haven’t done a survey yet, but ask anyone who has ever appeared on any of our programs, and you will hear how they are constantly being stopped at Colella’s, the Post Office, and on the street, by people who have seen them on TV.

I am very pleased with the growth of HCAM-TV. This season has more than a dozen series being produced. Everything from governmental meetings, high school sports, drama, informational talk shows, music, poetry… all this and more with a strong local connection. And between our programming we air the Community Bulletin Board (CBB). This service integrates the capabilities of our automated playback system, allowing us to streamline the CBB, keep it entertaining and interesting as well as informative, and to add some pizzazz to messages for HCAM members.

As an Organizational Member of HCAM-TV, you will enjoy the following benefits:

  • Your bulletin messages will run longer, have a range of fonts and colors, and may incorporate graphics and photos.
  • HCAM will produce 30 second public service announcements concerning your programs and events that will air on the top of the hour and on our website, giving your opportunities even wider impact.
  • You may list your events on the Hopkinton Planner, a powerful online calendar hosted here on HCAM and also a core component of Hopkinton.org, the Town's official website.

The cost of membership $50 per year for Hopkinton based groups ($100 for regional groups) , a clear bargain for the outreach and informational opportunities provided by HCAM. I would be happy to talk with you on the phone or meet with you to discuss how we can help your organization connect with the citizens of Hopkinton.
