Underwriting

Enhance your image in the community with a sponsorship message on BCTV. Comcast and Southern Vermont Cable carry BCTV's channels to over 6000 subscriber households -- a reach of almost 20,000-- in Brattleboro, Dummerston, Guilford, Jamaica, Newfane, Putney, Townshend and Vernon. It's the only way to reach a local audience through television exposure. BCTV is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies on donations and underwriting to bridge the gap between the cable subscriber fees we receive and the cost of the services BCTV provides. While subscriber fees create a baseline budget for our operations, we are constantly trying to do more with every dollar and stay current in a world of rapidly-evolving technology.
