SCTV Needs Your Help

December 10, 2014

We knew that SCTV was an important resource for information about Simsbury; in the last few weeks we saw just how important. But when we couldn’t broadcast LIVE from the Simsbury Public Library, we also saw that our technology is not keeping up. We need your help to improve our technology. If you value SCTV, send a check to SCTV P.O. Box 767, Simsbury, CT 06070. Or go to our website at Click on Donate 501(c) 3 on the right hand side of the page. You can also go directly to:

Tonight’s Board of Selectmen’s Meeting

December 8, 2014

SCTV will be covering the Board of Selectmen Meeting at 7 pm. Because is being held at the Simsbury Library Program Room, it will NOT be LIVE. It WILL be recorded for later broadcast. There are very few places SCTV from which SCTV has the technical capabilities to broadcast live. The Simsbury Public Library is not one of them. Simsbury Community TV apologizes in advance for any inconvenience.

Some satellite TV companies are currently making a big push to encourage TV viewers to leave cable and use their service.

They will tell you that their service includes ALL local channels. Just an FYI. SCTV’s channels are NOT available on satellite TV.


SCTV, which is featured on Comcast Channels 5, 95 and 96, is one of the few remaining ways that you can learn about your community and your government. It can also be seen on AT&T’s U-verse Channel 99, but it takes some perseverance to get there. Other media is disappearing. Just yesterday we saw that the latest Simsbury publication “Inside Simsbury” would no longer be appear here. Support SCTV!

Film Festival

February 9, 2012

Registration Deadline is April 1, 2012

We are responsible for nothing and you are responsible for everything … Well almost everything.
That pretty much sums it up and is pretty standard for almost all festivals. We don’t window dress it … We are just to the point.

However, for those of you who really, really need definite boundaries, here are most if not all of the rules.
