Any resident of Santa Cruz County can submit a video program to play on our public access channel. Programs submitted by the public are shown on Channel 27 on the Comcast System and Channel 73 on the Charter System. Programs do not have to be produced using our equipment but you must be a resident of Santa Cruz County to submit. To submit a program please follow these two steps:
- Complete a playback request form below. When you submit the form you agree to the terms of our Statement of Compliance. You take full responsibility for your program’s content, including all necessary licenses and approvals. All program producers must have a signed Statement of Compliance form on file at CTV You may fill out and submit a Statement of Compliance Form here.
Make sure you have filled out each field and hit the “submit” button at the end of the form. You may need to scroll down on the form to find the button.
- Once you have submitted your Public Program Submission Form follow the directions below to upload your video.
You must include the appropriate disclaimers at the beginning of all submitted programming.
- Non-series producers click here for instructions on using the Connect service.
- Series producers click here for uploading and scheduling instructions. Note that series producers must have their own Connect account. If you are beginning a new series, contact Victor Herrmann to get an account.
Public program submissions must be submitted using the above method. CTV will no longer be accepting DVDs. For best results, export a high quality compressed .mov file and upload to connect. If you only have DVDs of your show contact Victor for instructions on digitizing your media.
Your program will usually be scheduled within 1-2 weeks of submission.
That’s it! We look forward to receiving your program.
