PEG Access Advisory Committee
The purpose of the PEG Access Advisory Committee is to monitor the effectiveness of Concord’s PEG Access services, and to help the Select Board ensure that the those services conform to the requirements of the Comcast franchise agreement while safeguarding the public’s interest in community television through policies promoting fairness, equal access, and non-discrimination. The committee is also intended to promote quality telecommunication services that reflect the interests and concerns of Concord residents. The committee will also assist the Select Board in adapting to new technologies as society moves from the traditional local cable television to more current telecommunication services.

What does PEG stand for?
Public access channels are available for use by the general public. They are usually administered either by the cable operator or by a third party designated by the franchising authority.
Educational access channels are used by educational institutions for educational programming. Time on these channels is typically allocated among local schools, colleges and universities by either the franchising authority or the cable operator.
Governmental access channels are used for programming by local governments. In most jurisdictions, the local governments directly controls these channels.
