Online Podcast Agreement
CCTV distributes podcast episodes on multiple streaming platforms including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, and more. Podcast producers must use their personal Apple ID in order to distribute their podcast on the Apple Podcasts app. CCTV also distributes the episodes on Cambridge channels (Comcast cable channels 8, 9, & 96 in Cambridge), web streams (, video on demand/VOD platforms (e.g., YouTube, Vimeo), and social media (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, Twitter).

After one or two training sessions in the podcast studio, the podcast producers are responsible for set-up and breakdown of equipment, bringing their own 16GB or 32 GB SD cards, editing MP3 audio and video version if needed, cover-art and graphics for promotional use, and the overall completion of the podcast episode. Once ready to air and distribute, the podcast producer sends the final product to the podcast coordinator either online or via an SD card or a hard drive.

All Podcast producers must become a CCTV member, which includes the use of our podcast studio, editing suite, and multiple CCTV class offerings and trainings.

Distribution of all programming may be preceded by disclaimers indicating that legal responsibility for program content lies with the producer and not with CCTV, nor the City of Cambridge, nor the cable provider.

Distribution of the following is prohibited by CCTV

Content not protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution: Programming that does not fall under constitutionally protected speech and raises serious risk of liability on the part of CCTV. This may include, but is not limited to: libel, slander; unlawful invasion of privacy; sedition (advocacy of violent overthrow of the government); or obscene material.

Obscene material as determined by the courts is material which: to the average person, applying contemporary community standards, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest; depicts or describes sexual content in a patently offensive way; and taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.

Commercial content: Programming that contains advertising, promotion of the sale or price of any product or service, commercial calls to action or inducements to buy, and business contact information in the form of addresses, phone numbers, and websites. Exception: Non-English programming may contain commercial content when distributed solely
on channel 96.

Copyrighted content: Programming that contains copyrighted content without releases, licenses, or other necessary clearances from copyright holders and/or those appearing in the production.

Distribution of the following may be limited by CCTV:

Potentially objectionable content: CCTV reserves the right to limit distribution of programming if it contains potentially objectionable content including, but not limited to: strong, coarse language, intensely suggestive dialogue, or coarse indecent language; intense sexual situations or explicit sexual activity; most forms of nudity; intense or graphic physical violence or degradation; or graphic depiction of medical procedures. Limitations may include, but are not limited to: restricting times to be shown on its channels and webstreams, and restricting availability on its VOD platforms and social media.
