I was wondering the same thing...we have only one station from Springfield
(WGBY 57) on our cable system, which acording to my estimates, is a bit
closer than Derry.
And Worcester is even closer. This is the current line-up of broadcast
stations on the local cable system here:

cable Call  Location
2  WGBY 57  Springfield
3  FOX      National Feed
4  WBZ 4    Boston
5  WCVB 5   Boston
7  WHDH 7   Boston
9  WMUR 9   Manchester
10 WCDC 19  North Adams (WTEN 10 Albany)
11 WVTA 41  Windsor
12 W62AT 62 Bellows Falls (WCAX 3 Burlington)
13 WNNE 31  Hartford (Vt)
14 WNDS 50  Derry
15 WSBK 38  Boston
16 WEKW 52  Keene (WENH 11 Durham)

Until a couple of years ago, WGGB 40 occupied the space now held by WCVB.
Also at this time WGBH was swapped for WGBY.
