With the proposed rule change from the FCC looming (for more information, please visit: http://digital.vpr.net/post/fccs-proposed-rule-threatens-cable-access-television-funding-vermont#stream/0), public access stations in Vermont are worried about what that may mean for their futures.

SAPA TV has always been proud to be a part of the vibrant communities of Weathersfield, Springfield, and Chester.  If you, as a member of the community, feel strongly about community media and would like to support SAPA-TV, please consider taking one of these steps.

  2. Making a donation.  If you donate 30 dollars or more to SAPA-TV, we will send you your very own SAPA TV mug, while supplies last.  We truly appreciate our wonderful community members and everything they have offered SAPA-TV throughout the last 20 years. We appreciate your support.
