Lighthouse TV23

TV23 - A Joint Town/Village Service

Lighthouse TV23

HAT IS LIGHTHOUSE TV23?


Saugerties’ public access cable channel (Lighthouse TV23) is a vehicle for community communication, education, artistic expression and other noncommercial uses of video on an open, uncensored and equitable basis.

If you are in the Saugerties TWC viewing area, and you have an event you would like to publicize, simply send an email with the information you want displayed (ideally 30 words or less, so that the screen is not too crowded) to lighthousetv@saugerties.ny.us

If you have a video of general interest to Saugerties cable subscribers, you can submit it by downloading a Channel Time Request Form (see below), filling it out and bringing the form and a DVD (with a menu) to the Town Hall building.

Lighthouse TV23 is a joint Town and Village of Saugerties undertaking.  It is funded by both the Town and Village boards, and those boards are advised by a committee made up of 5 Town committee, with one open position, (Matt Phillips, Paul O'Malley, Gus Pedersen, and John  Kelley) and 5 Village committee members, with one open position (Nigel Redman, Robert Schnell, Peter Lang, and Paul VanSchaack).  Leeanne Thornton is the Town board liaison and Jeannine Mayer is the Village board liaison. 


Anastasia Redman is the Program Coordinator, and is your contact for bulletin board and program submissions, questions about the studio and any other questions you might have.  Her email address is lighthousetv@saugerties.ny.us and she can be reached by phone at 246-2800, extension 341.

December 2014 - TWC Files Maximum Rates Document with the FCC

 

TWC has filed a yearly document with the FCC covering the period from March 1, 2015 to February 28, 2016.  It is available for your review.  It covers a lot of ground and provides numerous data points, but the net impact to Town of Saugerties residents is that TWC is allowed to charge a maximum montly rate for basic service, of $77.42 and they plan to actually charge a maximum basic service monthly rate of $23.  By way of comparison, this is a $1 per month increase for basic service, over the period from March 1, 2015 to February 28, 2016.  For full details, click here to download the PDF.  

The document also covers channels to be provided (seemingly identical to the prior period) and numerous other data points.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: What can I see on Lighthouse TV23?

A: Saugerties public access Channel (TV23) cablecasts the shows listed immediately above, each week, as well as ad-hoc scheduled programs that are submitted by area residents in the Saugerties Time-Warner cable viewing area. When programming is not available, the Community Calendar is shown. The Community Calendar includes event announcements (both one-time events and regularly scheduled events) and announcements about organizations. We also show public-service announcements as well as photos submitted by viewers and stations promos.

Q: How do I find out what is coming up on Lighthouse TV23?

A: The schedule is regularly updated on this Web page. Weekly coverage of what is on TV23 from Thursday through Wednesday appears in Saugerties' weekly newspapers. (Thursday through Wednesday, because the Saugerties weekly papers come out on Thursdays.)  We also include the schedule for the next 2 days of upcoming programs as part of the bulletin board listings.

Q: How do I submit a bulletin board item on Lighthouse TV23, to publicize an upcoming event our organization is having?

A: Announcements on the bulletin board are designed to publicize events, organizations or meetings of interest to the TV23 viewing audience.  Any not-for-profit charitable organization or agency, government or quasi government agency, service organization, church or not-for-profit group or membership organization within our viewing area is invited to submit information on specific events under their sponsorship.  Publicity chairpersons or other authorized representative who wish to have a specific event or activity listed may email them to lighthousetv@saugerties.ny.us Alternatively, their listings may be submitted in writing and mailed, faxed (246-0127) or delivered to the Saugerties Town Hall, attention: TV23, 4 High Street, Saugerties.  

Bulletin board items typically begin to be shown no earlier than a month before an event that they are publicizing.  Exceptions to that must be approved by the TV23 Program Coordinator.
 
Q: I've seen photographs of the area on TV23. I have some that I would like to share. How can I get them on?

A: Simply email a high-quality .jpg file to lighthousetv@saugerties.ny.us. We add photos to the bulletin board as we can. If you send a large number of photos, we'll use our discretion and pick the one or two that we think most of the audience would most enjoy seeing. We will also not air photos intended to make a political, social or other statement.  Photos that are landscape (wide than they are taller, like a typical TV screen) show larger and therefore more clearly than portrait (taller than they are wider) photos, all other photo quality matters being equal.

Q: Can I have a show on Lighthouse TV23?

A: For sure. You can produce these on your own and submit them, or you can take some classes and become certified to use the equipment and services of the Lighthouse TV23 studio.  For more information on producing a show and/or having it scheduled, call 845-246-2800, extension 341, or email your questions to lighthousetv@saugerties.ny.us

In the meantime, if you already have a DVD of a program that you have produced or that you want shown on Lighthouse TV23, and assuming the material to be cablecast is within the guidelines stipulated in our Program Agreement Form (see downloadable "Documents" below), you can submit that material for viewing.

Q: OK. I have a DVD I want to submit. How do I do that?

A: Anyone who submits a tape must have read the Lighthouse TV23 Policy Document and Program Agreement Form. To submit your first program, you must sign the Program Agreement form (saying you will follow TV23's rules) and submit it, along with a Channel Time Request Form and the program media at Town Hall. (Or mail it to Town Hall, 4 High Street.) . Please note that the DVD must have a menu, for multiple plays through the same day.

Your Program Agreement Form will be kept on file at Town Hall. Any subsequent submissions require only the Channel Time Request Form and the submitted media.

If you want your show posted/printed in the Saugerties weekly papers (free), you need to include with the media your program is on, the proper paperwork (called the
Program Agreement Form) to TV23 with the title of the program, the date(s)/time(s) you requested it be shown, its exact duration and a couple sentence description. Program information submitted in any emails received by the end of the day on a Sunday (or earlier) will be included in the Saugerties Post Star and Saugerties Times, in the TV23 listings, as well as on this Web page. 

Q: Can I attend a TV23 committee meeting?

A: Absolutely.  The committee welcomes the public to attend committee meetings, offer comments during the public comment session that opens each meeting, and hear about the myriad activities that go on behind the scenes to contribute to TV23's success.  The meeting's are typically held on the 2nd Thursday of each month, in the Town Hall conference room.  Check the Village Web site calendar, to be sure the date hasn't changed for a particular month's meeting that you might be interested in.
