About Project Open Voice


Project Open Voice is a commitment to broaden the discovery of local content, including public, educational and government (PEG) programming. We seek to address the questions of diverse demand for local content in different communities and the variety of ways to deliver it. Comcast is working in six trial markets to find answers: Peterborough, NH; Medford, MA; Philadelphia, PA; Hialeah, FL; Houston, TX; and Fresno, CA.

Because of Comcast’s commitment to PEG in local communities, they became a focal point for the project. Working with those providers, along with community leaders, non-profits and independent producers, we developed online and OnDemand platforms for all partners to use freely. We will continue to learn & adapt, and encourage you to explore Project Open Voice regularly.
