Welcome to "The Authorities"
Public Access
Information Website
for its Rhode Island service areas

"The Authority" believes that public, education and governmental access television are all about creating community programming with few or no barriers to the producer. We will provide you with the equipment, the training, the studio space, the airtime and the support staff to help you make your own program, at no cost. The few limitations that do exist are set by state and federal law, and your own imagination and ambition. Public Access television in Rhode Island - it's television that you make.

In Rhode Island, The Authority  provides public, educational and governmental access in every town in Rhode Island except  New Shoreham.

What follows is a guide to our operations, policies and locations, as well as descriptions of those public access programs currently in production in our service areas in the State of Rhode Island.
