To develop and produce educational, cultural and informational community programming for the Town of Easton, MA and to provide an electronic forum for the free exchange of information and ideas which reflect the talents, interests, concerns and diversity of Easton residents.


Easton, Massachusetts initiated the process of forming an independent community TV station in 2009. The cable advisory board in the Town negotiated new license agreements with the cable providers Comcast and Verizon. Part of these agreements set aside funding for the operation of a PEG access facility. PEG stands for Public, Education and Government access Television. 

In January 2010 ECAT began broadcasting two of these channels on both Comcast and Verizon from the 50 Oliver St. studio.
