News from HCAT TV

August 22, 2018

Holliston Cable Access Television has produced 174 new shows since January 1, 2018.

Why is this news?

Because our shows are produced by volunteers right here in Holliston! And we have a small staff of 3.5 people to get the shows up and out.

There is quite an array of shows that you can watch on Verizon or Comcast, You Tube, and Video on Demand at our HCAT website (HCATTV.org).

On TV, shows air three to five times in a week. Of course, the shows online are viewable at any time.

So what are these shows? Here are just a few that are not date-sensitive, so you can enjoy them anytime.

How Does Your Garden Grow? Five shows  - on pruning, Proven Winners, daylilies, Holliston Garden Tour, and composting.

Canning Your Produce, Library program

The Cocoanut Grove Fire, Library Program

Faith Traditions among a Protestant, Jewish and Muslim leaders.

Senator Spilka’s, “Emotional Learning Forum” at the Warren Conference.

Goodwill Concerts, five.

Agriculture Commission Animal Laws Boot Camp on the laws regarding raising livestock farmers. with experts from across the state.

Special Needs programs on Executive Function, MCAS and Assistive Technology.

Heartbeat of Holliston –  Our own magazine show that chronicles stories on each show about the people and real happenings in town.

Walking Tour of Holliston – lots of local history and lore as presented to America in Bloom visitors.

Money & the Law where Jay Marsden and John Drohan lighten up the usually heavy, always important information they provide with humor.

Sports There are dozens of seasonal sports games like basketball, baseball, lacrosse, softball, football and more. There are school programs like concerts, Pops, High School Graduation, Senior Showcase, and Willy Wonka, etc.

We Have a New Website

We have a new website that is SO much easier to navigate. Check it out. Search by show or topic. Scroll through clips. Spend a few minutes to become familiar with all we have to offer. And then watch us regularly anywhere you are.

We are all about the community  - and you can join us any time by volunteering to operate a camera or start a new show. We offer training and will even offer AVID editing training this fall.

So, as they say – “Get with the Program”  - of your choice … on HCAT TV.
