Holliston Cable Access Inc. was incorporated in 1985 with the initial cable television license. Space was found at Holliston High School to build the production faciltiy. The first volunteer training class was held in 1986 and the first local television program, Holliston News and Views, was broadcast.
In the years that followed the corporation grew from one part time person to the current two full time and one part time employees. Instead of manually cueing and playing video tape, a computerized, digital playback system is used to replay our programs. We recently began to provide programs on demand via our web site so viewers can watch our programs at their convenience on most electronic devices.
HCAT also provides a bulletin board system that is displayed between programming to provide information to the community.
Today HCAT has several interesting, informative, and entertaining programs produced by volunteers.
The corporation is managed by a 7 person board of directors who volunteer their time to manage HCAT.
