Salem Access Television is the City of Salem’s Public Access TV Station – it exists due to an agreement between the city’s cable provider and the communities it serves. Public access programming is community programming on cable TV. It gives members and organizations of the community the opportunity to write, produce, direct, and perform in their own programs. SATV’s channels feature programs which are produced locally by members, SATV staff and other professionally produced programs. SATV provides members of the community with the necessary training, equipment, and use of facilities to produce TV programs.
