Membership Fees

As of 7/1/19, there is a new membership fee structure to reflect changes in federal law that decrease funding for public access stations such as BCTV. The fees are the same for Individuals and Organizations. These are fees for Producing Members who want to use BCTV's equipment, facilities, and training services. If you want to support BCTV as a donor,  please go to our Support page and make a donation.  

The new rates are as follows, and apply to anyone joining or renewing their membership as of 7/1/19. 

Step 1: Join BCTV as a Producing Member:

Basic Membership: $25.00 annual fee

Student (26 and under): $15.00 annual fee

Without paying any additional fees, Basic Membership entitles you to:

  • Submit finished programs to air on BCTV's cable channels and be uploaded to BCTV's website and YouTube channel (unlimited).
  • One individual training session (Basic Camera, Editing, Studio Production)
  • Access to BCTV equipment and facilities according to the fee structure below.

Step 2: Either pay by use (like a co-pay), or choose an Annual Package if you anticipate using BCTV equipment and/or editing and studio facilities regularly. (For more than 3-4 uses per year, a package has the best price.) Please call 802-257-0888 or email info(at)brattleborotv.org for guidance on your membership, or if the fees are a barrier.
