Cablecast Customer Reviews

“Everyone from our superintendent to our director of public health are using it to provide updates about school re-openings and safety protocols. Being able to easily share [those updates] in the highest quality possible has been critical for us, and Cablecast is enabling us to do that.”

Matt Mena-Landry
Media Arts Program Manager, Cambridge Public Schools

“A game-changer for us was the ability to work with the local emergency planning committee to post information that was critical and timely, when it absolutely has to get out. We post emergency notices from wherever we have electricity and Internet connectivity, or even using cellular data on our mobile phones if our Internet link is down. People in the community really sat up and took notice, as there was nowhere else they could go to get information that quickly. It made Falmouth Community Television instantly more vital to the community.”

Debra Rogers
Executive Director & CEO, FCTV

“Holbrook is a unique community in terms of political engagement and HCAM serves a vital role in that...Cablecast helps us help them watch what's going on in an age when people want it right now.”

Zack Gorman
Executive Director, HCAM - Holbrook, MA
