Harbor Media staff have been busier than ever this past year completing innovative technology upgrades.
Now all Comcast and Verizon subscribers have access to crisp high-definition viewing similar to what they experience when watching programming on network TV.
Efforts are also underway to increase the amount of community-produced content, with more than 20 volunteers of different ages trained for that purpose.
There is no longer a fee to be a volunteer member of Harbor Media, so anyone is welcome to present an idea for a new program.
Harbor Media -- a non-profit in its 10th year of providing cable television service to the town through public, education, and government programming -- now also provides both live and video-on-demand scheduling. Closed captioning will be available soon.
An added feature is the showing of a recent town government meeting at 9 p.m. on the two main -- now high-definition -- channels. The TV schedule is available at harbormedia.org.
"An earlier survey of subscribers indicated that town government meetings and high school sports coverage are the most popular," Harbor Media Executive Director Michelle Balconi said recently.
