Did You Know?
Due to the 1984 Cable Franchise Policy and Communications Act authored by Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater, US cable companies are required to fund local organizations to provide training and access to media technology and cable distribution on the local cable systems. This legislation was intended to enrich communities with the opportunity to produce community programming and address local issues and concerns on the electronic medium. Public access television is one type of PEG access, short for Public, Educational, and Governmental, the three traditional structures within a municipality television network.
