Re: Hub TV in Western Mass....
Well, I live in Amherst out here in western Mass. I watched Acting Governor
Jane Swift's address back in October on NECN, which is part of my town's
BASIC cable service. (meaning I only get the broadcast channels) Since
AT&T Broadband provides cable for most of the cities and towns out here, I
assume that most places also have NECN as part of their basic cable, and
therefore would have been able to watch her speech.
