Moon Community Access Television is the public, educational and government access television station owned and operated by the Township of Moon. Moon Township is one of the few Western Pennsylvania municipalities to give township residents the opportunity to produce original television programs.
For more than 25 years, MCA-TV has aired locally-produced programming designed to keep Moon Township residents tuned in to their community. In turn, Moon Township residents also play an active part in MCA-TV’s programming lineup.
As a public access television station, MCA-TV is designed to give residents the opportunity to communicate via television. MCA-TV airs a full lineup of locally-produced programs, all of which are produced by Moon Township residents with the help of volunteers from any community.
MCA-TV airs locally on Comcast channel 14 and Verizon FiOS channel 35, and reaches more than 20,000 households in Moon Township and surrounding communities. The station is primarily funded by the cable television franchise fees that cable carriers Comcast and Verizon pay to Moon Township each year. The franchise agreements for each cable provider can be found here: Moon Comcast Franchise Agreement Final 5-4-11.pdf" or Version_ Agmt 11-16-07.pdfVerizon (PDF).
As a volunteer-driven television station, MCA-TV relies on community members to produce, tape and star in its locally-produced programming. Whether you prefer to work behind the scenes or on-camera, MCA-TV has a role for you.
