GCTV is programming content by and for the community of Guilford, CT. Programs are aired first on our Comcast and Frontier channels. Community producers can opt-in to our online channel and have their programming posted to YouTube by GCTV after it has broadcast.

GCTV Open for Business

GCTV will resume regular office hours starting Sunday 6/25/17.  Our air conditioning was repaired on Wednesday.  While we are waiting for a more permanent fix to the problem, we hope to not have any other unplanned interruptions.

We will be closed July 2-4, but will be open for regular office hours on July 6.

Our weekend program schedule has some great new programs from CT Shoreline Indivisible and the Town of Guilford.  In the coming weeks we should be receiving another episode of Living with Wildlife and more new programs from CT Shoreline Indivisible and Guilford Rotary.  We will also be airing our very first Capstone presentation, 7 Days of Healthy Eating, by Anna Reagle.  GCTV is a proud technical advisor to this year-long project.  Look for it next week on GCTV Broascast!

New programs will be uploaded to our YouTube channel by 6pm on Sunday.

Please feel free to contact Station Manager, Shannon Gale, with any questions.



GCTV Open By Appointment Only

Until further notice GCTV’s facilities will be open by appointment only.  Our air conditioning unit has failed and is beyond repair.  Until a new unit can be installed GCTV will operate by appointment only.

Any studio shoots will be scheduled as field programs off site.  New programs can continue to be submitted in the usual manner and the broadcast schedule will continue to be updated regularly.  Editing time will be scheduled as needed.

All questions and requests for equipment and facility time can be directed to Station Manager, Shannon Gale, via email at






Broadcast Update

We are pleased to say that Comcast channel 19 is now up and running.

We will be performing some technical maintenance in the near future which will require the channels to be dark for a very brief period of time.  We will post an announcement as to the date and time that will occur.

There are several programs in post production and even more planned for production in the coming month including Indivisible CT, Guilford Rotary, Guilford Community Fund and a new video coming from the Living With Wildlife series.

An Update to Technical Issues in Broadcast

Yesterday GCTV posted a message on our Facebook page indicating that all three channels were down and we working to restore partial functionality by Wednesday.

We are happy to report that we have restored full functionality to channels 18 and 20 and have published a new broadcast schedule for the Wednesday / Thursday play cycle.

Channel 19 remains down and will be dark until we receive the part we need to get it functioning again.

BOE meetings will be aired on channel 20 as well as school board announcements until function is returned to channel 19.

2017 Student Video Contest

On March 26, 2017 GCTV awarded our second group of students with the top three spots in GCTV’s student video contest.  The topic matter was diverse providing information, entertainment and thought provoking content to our broadcast channels.

If you have not yet seen the broadcast of the awards ceremony please take a few moments to watch now.  If you know of any high school students in Guilford who have a love of video production please encourage them to stay in touch with GCTV.  We are currently planning to open registration for the 2018 contest in the fall.

New Content on GCTV

We saw a lot of new programs on the air this month and have even more to come in March.  Look for the IRIS presentation, Building Code Board of Appeals, new segments from In This Together and Spiritual Invitation with Carla Augustyn.

The three finalists in the GCTV Student Video Contest have been announced and we are finalizing plans for a studio shoot to unveil their ranking in the contest.  Like last year, finalists may invite family and friends to participate in a live studio audience during the filming.  We plan to broadcast the studio production sometime in April.  Videos that did not make the top three will be aired after the award ceremony.

We leave you with some highlights from February’s broadcasts and look forward to bringing you some new programs soon.



Coming in February to GCTV

February is shaping up to be a busy month at GCTV.  We will continue to receive and broadcast budget related programming, which will be made available on our Budget2017 Youtube playlist.  In This Together will be releasing a new episode in the series featuring the Sierra Club and is already making plans to go back into production to bring you more segments.

GCTV is proud to offer our support for a student pursuing the GHS Capstone project.  Work will not be finalized until May, but we look forward to sharing the final product with you.  We also invite any Guilford student whose class assignment involves video production to sign up for production time at GCTV!  You can make use of our studio, editing and field equipment to complete your assignment.  Just be sure to get in our calendar as soon as the assignment is put in your calendar.

Registration for the Student Video Contest closes this Sunday, February 5 2017 at 3:30pm.  All entries will then be forwarded to our community judges for review.  Look for an announcement toward the end of February about the 3 finalists.
