SAPA TV (Springfield Area Public Access) is the community media center and training facility for the towns of Springfield, Weathersfield and Chester, Vermont. We also serve the neighboring community of Charlestown, New Hampshire.

Since being formed in 1998 by outgoing community members, SAPA TV has been providing its communities with access to video equipment, facilities and training. SAPA TV also covers the area’s 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, and we are proud to showcase their creations.
