About Us

HAY ON TV IS YOUR COMMUNITY TV CHANNEL HOSTED ON THE NET

It covers the news, views, events and humor of local residents, both in the films and in the on going debate in the comments below.

Tell your story and hear people discussing it immediately on the street. Vote on issues that affect you and have your say on day to day issues.

We wish to democratize our local media, giving everyone equal and fair access, so we can all contribute in community affairs.

HOW

We lend out small flip video cameras and offer training in shooting and editing, to help you have your voice, by helping you make your films.

If you have shot a film yourself already you can simply upload it to the site directly.
 
If you have an idea but don’t wish to film it we try to arrange a community correspondent to film it for you.

THE NEXT STEP

Community is what motivates us, and all films made about and for the community are uploaded and hosted for free.

To facilitate this we do need your support in fundraising for the channel. So we will be charging nominal fees to make and host films that promote local businesses and events.

PROMOTE YOUR LOCAL BUSINESS AND SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL CHANNEL

HAY ON TV - A GREAT PLATFORM TO PROMOTE YOURSELF ON

Within a week of our launch Hay On TV attracted over one thousand local viewers - two thirds of the local population. It has gone from strength to strength, surprising even ourselves. Films such as the Zumba video led to a quadruple increase in class attendance within a month. Viewing figures for The Spring Green Festival are at over 150 in twenty four hours. Clearly Hay On TV is a good place to promote yourself.

We hope to make the films less like advertisements and more like short films. For example if you are a builder we could film you showing us a trick of the trade, if you run a friendly B and B we could interview you as the host as you tour the B and B. At the end of each film would be a link to your website and contact details.

If you wish to use this film on your own website this can also be done for an additional fee.

Rates vary depending on whether you are self shooting, commissioning us to shoot your films, and where on the site and when you want to advertise.

HAY FESTIVAL 2012

Hay on TV will be having a huge publicity push over the festival. Pre festival we will have social media marketing in place bringing the wider festival audience over to the channel.

SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY OFFER FOR HAY FESTIVAL 2012

In support of our local community we wish to make a film promoting the independent shops of Hay, and encourage festival goers to come into town over the ten days.

For £40 we will come and film your shop or business. You can tell us how you would like us to promote you and it will be included in the longer film.  This will be hosted on the site one week before and over the festival.

If you wish to use the film independently for your own web channel this can be done for an additional fee.

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT
