TV & Digital Sponsorships

MRVTV offers a number of sponsorship opportunities on our TV and digital platforms. These sponsorships support our operating costs and link your business with an organization that provides valuable services to community members and others around the country. Social media data, website viewership information and guidelines for acceptable messages are listed at the bottom of this page. Packages are for 12 months and invoices will be sent on a monthly basis. A 5% discount on package pricing is available if full payment is made at the start of a sponsorship. Receive another 10% off if you purchase both a TV and digital package. Please contact us if you have any questions or are interested in being one of our sponsors.

TV Packages

As one of our TV sponsors your message will be broadcast in high-definition (HD) and you will be associated with a pioneer in public access TV, as MRVTV is one of the few public access TV stations in Vermont and the entire US to broadcast in HD. MRVTV is available to 2,400 homes that subscribe to Waitsfield Cable.
