Submit a Show

Any person can submit a program to CTV’s, whether it’s brand new, or a program that has already been made.

In order to put a show on the air you need to make sure it is ready for CABLECAST

Pre-Recorded programs MUST BE SUBMITTED AS a 4×3 (or 4×3 letterboxed) MPG2 file or as a standard DVD. Producers must also submit a Request for Cablecast. Regular recurring shows may submit an Annual Request for Cablecast once a year. You can find our Request for Cablecast forms here.

Minimum Requirements for Cablecast

All submitted programs must include the following

Opening Disclaimer (CTV CAN PROVIDE THIS)

  • A 10 second opening disclaimer slate of black background with white text in a plain legible font such as Arial or Times New Roman in a point size that fills the screen without affecting the aspect ratio of the text, with no movement, music, or other audio, except of the opening disclaimer text below, that states the following verbatim:

        “The following program was provided by an independent producer solely responsible for its content. The opinions expressed do not necessarily represent the views of Cheshire TV, its staff, Board of Directors, or underwriters”

  • A title that is the same as the name of the program on the paperwork submitted
  • The program content also must meet technical standards, contain no prohibited material and follow guidelines for commercial content
  • The end of the program must have, at a minimum, a credit for the Producer and correct sponsor (if you have one).
