Series and Single Specials

There are two ways to air programming on PATV, as a regularly scheduled series or a single special. All application forms and policies can be picked up from our offices or mailed to you..

You (or your sponsor) are also required to provide one form of photo ID and proof of residency.

If your program (series) is new to PATV, the Forms must be accompanied by a DVD or tape of your program for reviewing.

Single Programs:

If you have a program ready to submit, complete the Program Proposal Form, Cablecast Request Form* and Statement of Compliance. Hand it in by the 5th of the month along with your tape and proof of ID and residency, to Sandi Ferguson, or mail it to PATV 1111 Marcus Avenue, Suite LL27, Lake Success, NY 11042. One tape for each program request application form.

* We will try to get the program on the following months schedule if there are any open time slots.  However, we can not guarantee that you will get the time slot you request.

Regularly Scheduled Series:

To apply for a series, submit a Cablecast Request Form, Statement of Compliance, a Program Proposal and a pilot tape to Sandi Ferguson. Specific dates for submitting forms for Series Request will be mailed 1 month prior to start of new series.  (Next Date for Series Renewals is March 2012 for April 2012 airing).  Time slots for series are guaranteed in 6 month increments.

You must also submit a photocopy of your photo ID and proof of residency. Only one tape  (program)  per series application.

Technical Standards

PATV strives to improve the technical quality of the programming we air. We rely upon producers to make sure that the tapes you submit meet our technical requirements, or we will not be able to play it. To ensure better quality playback, we encourage producers to submit their programs on DVD or File.
