Last month, QATV’s video playback server stopped working. After attempts to repair the server were unsuccessful, we are now working on obtaining and installing a replacement. During this time, we will be unable to run a full programming schedule, but will run a limited schedule of programs where possible. Live programming, including city council meetings, AM Quincy, and Currently in Quincy are not affected, and will continue to air at their normal times.

We appreciate your patience, and we will keep you updated during this process. We look forward to returning to a full programming schedule as soon as we can.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Quincy Access Television!
