They say you only get one chance to make a first impression. For a television show, that comes in the form of a pilot episode. Some shows do an excellent job, building anticipation for everything that is to come, while others take some time to find their footing. Today, we’re going to share with you some of the best pilots of and some mediocre pilots that turned into fantastic shows.


Community media is a platform to share perspectives. Our partnership with the Newton Free Library brings fresh content to our Government Channel with performing arts, history and lectures that present dynamic topics of interest. Each month a library program is showcased in the series Events at the Newton Free Library, airing daily at 1:00pm.

This week, NewTV hosted its first ever Member Meet and Greet. We opened the night with tours for newer members, and let the members mingle with one another and the staff. Executive Director, Bob Kelly and I then gave some opening remarks and we watched a video, which highlighted some of the many benefits our members have here at NewTV.

Winter in New England: The Best Time for Live Television

Written by Noreen Moross, Director of Production Services

Happy New Year! Once again winter has arrived in New England and with it difficult driving conditions, cold days, long dark nights and for some, the winter blues. Luckily it’s the best time of year to be stuck inside with your remote if you like live television.


If you’ve been following what’s going on at NewTV, hopefully you know that we are introducing podcasting. This February, we will be offering the first Introduction to Podcasting class for a one-time discounted rate of $50. Once members are certified on the equipment, they can start producing podcasts at NewTV. We are so excited to bring this new feature to our members as we continue to adapt to the current media landscape.
