Action Update: Amherst - Comcast Cable Renewal

Update update: Temporary Town Manager Peter Hechenbleikner will tonight encourage the Select Board sign off on the contract as it currently stands. The Cable Advisory Committee today proposed via consensus that the Select Board hold off at this time to allow for further discussion on the outstanding issues, including Comcast's denial of HD, access to the Electronic Program Guide, capital expenditures, and other items.

If you wish to contact the Select Board on this topic, you can send an email to

Thank you.


A tentative agreement between the Town of Amherst and Comcast is being presented to the Select Board on Monday, August 1. It does not currently meet the needs of Amherst citizens. Take a few minutes to watch this presentation and consider contacting the Select Board members to let them know how you feel.
