Yarmouth Community Television

Yarmouth Municipal Television (YMTV) is a government access station with its studio located in the Log Cabin at 196 Main Street in Yarmouth, Maine. The Town of Yarmouth holds a Franchise Agreement with Time Warner that provides a cable channel for its televising facilities, broadcast on Channel 3. YMTV is a governmental facility and covers only governmental events, primarily meetings. In addition, the station provides a community Bulletin Board that runs community service announcements and provides Town of Yarmouth information.

Community Bulletin Board
The YMTV Bulletin Board will only accept content from governmental agencies, nonprofit agencies, churches, etc. The information announces events and/or activities in and around the Town of Yarmouth. YMTV will generally only post information for free or very low cost events. If you have questions about specific content, you can contact yarmouthtv@yarmouth.me.us to ask your specific question.

The YMTV Bulletin Board is comprised of JPG files, each playing for about fifteen seconds. If you would like to submit a JPG file to display on the bulletin board, you may email information in a .jpg image or Microsoft PowerPoint slide (landscape 4:3) or a press release to yarmouthtv@yarmouth.me.us.

Many meetings are now hybrid or completely virtual depending.  Hybrid means the meetings are virtual as well as in person at the Log Cabin (or Community Room).  CHECK COMMITTEE WEBSITES FOR LINKS TO MEETINGS.  Meetings are recorded and replayed here.  For School Committee meeting recordings check here for School Committee Meeting log in check here
