Salem Access Television is a non-profit community media center located on 285 Derby Street, just steps from Pickering Wharf in historic Salem, Massachusetts.
Since 1994 SATV has been offering-training, equipment and support in the art of television production to seniors, teens, individuals, groups and non-profit organizations. The goal is to train the people of Salem to use the facility to develop their own TV programming.
The shows are seen on one of our three channels, Channel 3 for public access, Channel 15 for educational access and Channel 22 for governmental programming. Any individual, group, non-profit organization or business within Salem is eligible to become a member of SATV.
The cycle for a member is twelve months and includes basic T.V._classes, use of equipment and access to the facility. Other advanced workshops are also available.
Much of the communication, creativity and entertainment in the city of Salem is shared through cable television. This way of conveying information to a mass audience has not been accessible to ordinary citizens like you until now! We have developed a dynamic, intensive and affordable program that allows people the means to create television programming themselves.
The programs shown on SATV are as diverse as the community itself. Programs may focus on local information about Salem or on global issues of concern to the residents. They may be educational, political, artistic, cultural, religious or entertaining in nature.
SATV gives you a chance to connect with others and share ideas, information and opinions through cable TV. By becoming a member, you not only get access to equipment and training but channel time as well.
