Please Help Billerica Access Television
& PEG Access TV Nationwide
Stop the FCC from Defunding PEG Channels
The FCC is proposing to redefine what a franchise fee is and it will radically reduce the level of monetary support available to run PEG access channels across the United States.
This means that BATV and access centers across the country could lose funding and
no longer be able to provide the community with the hyperlocal coverage that you've
come to rely on.
Please let your congressional representatives know you support Billerica Access Television and PEG Access TV nationwide by clicking HERE and sign the petition asking Congress to stop the FCC from trying to re-write the 1984 Cable Act and financially starving local communities and our PEG channels in its rule-making (Docket NR 05-311). It only takes
a couple of minutes to do. If you’ve already taken action, please share the link
and encourage your friends to do the same.
Thank you for your time and continued support of community media.
