ERCN is a Local Government Cable TV Channel, assigned to Channel 1303, which is on the air seven days a week. Our broadcast coverage area includes the Towns and Villages of Pittsford, Fairport, Perinton and East Rochester. Each of the four communities shares the airtime. Programming is provided by local Government and the Board of Education in each town in the broadcast coverage area. Additional programs are produced by volunteers in the four communities we represent and the content produced by the volunteers focuses on supporting the schools and local government. This service is funded through the four communities we represent from franchise fees, collected from Time Warner/Spectrum. These fees also bring in money for each of the towns general funds. This station costs the taxpayer zero tax dollars to operate.
Services also provided by ERCN include a community bulletin board covering information on local events, messages from local government, TV scheduling, and weather updates.
New to our broadcast coverage options is broadcast on ROKU-web streaming and video-on-demand. Now you don't have to live in the broadcast area and pay for Cable TV to get our programming. ERCN now provides web streaming of its live broadcast content to anyone who has access to ROKU or a computer with high speed cable or phone line internet connection, anywhere in the world. We mirror the same broadcast you see on Time Warner/Spectrum cable as well as make available special programs to our Video-On-Demand section. For the Video-On-Demand section we post local Town/Village and School Board meetings, all televised ERHS sporting events, significant local events, and historical programming to watch at any time you please.

ERCN proudly boasts over 30 volunteers who all pitch in to run one of the best local cable TV stations in all of Upstate New York but we're always looking for more help. Please contact the station via phone or email if you'd like to get involved and serve our community!
