Your TV Station – for Chelmsford, by Chelmsford.
CTM’s mission is: To empower our community to stay connected and informed by using digital media technology. We achieve that goal by broadcasting, recording and archiving almost every municipal meeting. We teach students media literacy and production, and we bring you school sports, concerts and more. Plus, we help any member of the community freely express themselves by creating their own video programming. In short, we give voice to the Chelmsford community.
We are an official department of the Town of Chelmsford. However, no tax dollars are used for CTM’s operating or capital expenses. Our funding is made possible by Chelmsford residents who subscribe to either Comcast or Verizon TV service. A 4.5% fee is collected on the TV portion of these subscribers’ monthly bills. These fees comprise a municipal enterprise fund whose sole purpose is to fund Chelmsford TeleMedia. This funding mechanism is made possible by The Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984 and MA General Law SEC 53 1/2 and 3/4.
