SAPA TV also covers the areas local school and town government meetings in an effort to keep the community informed.

SAPA TV is truly “Television Made by You!” Local volunteers are the heartbeat of SAPA TV. Local producers create hundreds of hours of content for SAPA TV each year. We are thankful that they share their time and talents with the community.

SAPA TV is funded by the “PEG Access Fee,” a small percentage of each Springfield, Chester, and Weathersfield cable subscriber’s monthly bill. These funds are designated by law for public access. These funds help to provide video equipment and facilities to community members.
