TWENTY FIVE YEARS OF SEEKONK CABLE ACCESS
1985 saw the advent of cable television in the town of Seekonk with the signing of a 15 year contract with CVI (Cable Vision Industries). The contract required that a fully equipped studio be installed in the Seekonk High School and a public studio be situated in town and staffed by CVI personnel. Free cable service was required for all public buildings and free access to the internet was provided to the schools and to the library. A Cable Access Corporation was to be formed to oversee cable transmissions from all public buildings and was to receive five percent of CVI’s income derived from Seekonk cable subscribers.
