By now, the shine is well off most of our New Year’s resolutions. Girl Scout cookies have likely torpedoed the weight loss goals, or perhaps dust mites have derailed those deep cleaning plans.
But with Cablecast in your corner, all is not lost. There’s still plenty of time to try something new. We offer so many features for PEG stations – let’s make 2023 the year to improve your productivity and expand your audience. Don’t worry, we’ll do most of the heavy lifting. Here are some ideas.

Upload your content for free, and no download is more than 99 cents! More than 1,000 stations and programmers are already use PEGMedia – why don’t you join us?

Create some Internet Channels. With Cablecast 7.5, you can have a customized web video presence for your content – without spending a small fortune on web development. Cablecast Internet Channels are turnkey video streaming sites for your live and VOD content. Each channel comes complete with customized branding, metadata, links and social media share buttons. There are no limits to the number of Internet Channels you can create, so you can arrange your content by series, community producer, local government department – or maybe create a channel for each school in your district.
Embolden your bulletin board. Cablecast CG has plenty of free templates, so it’s easy to freshen up your on-air look with new multi-zone messaging. Can’t find what you want? We also offer custom channel design services.
Add closed captioning. Our cloud-based, automated solution provides live captioning and file-based captioning services, with custom vocabularies to make sure the names of all those officials are spelled correctly. And with Cablecast Closed Captioning, there’s no additional hardware required! (Available on Cablecast VIO and Flex models, Version 7.4 software or later required.)
Make the jump to OTT. With so many people cutting the cord, it’s time for you to go where your audience is.
