In order to become a member at PATV, you are first required to take the Guidelines course as an introduction to PATV’s rules and regulations.
If you are unable to attend the hour-long Guidelines course at the studio (held at 6 PM on the first Thursday of every month), you may watch a Guidelines presentation online instead at http://patv.tv/guidelines – print off the guidelines here and follow along. Once finished, you’ll be asked to come into the studio to take a short quiz and sign a Statement of Compliance. Then, you can start using our equipment, green screen studio, editing bays, and sign up for our workshops!
After signing a Statement of Compliance, you are granted membership and can start turning in your own television shows for Mediacom Channel 18 and PATV’s YouTube channel.
If a person wishes to use PATV’s equipment, studio, and staff to make a show for Channel 18, they must pay annual dues for membership. After paying dues, they will become a producer for PATV.
