School TV channel revamped


The city’s educational access cable television channel has recently been revamped. The improvements expand the types of programs that can be offered on the channel (Comcast Channel 8). They also provide the School Department more flexibility in posting bulletin board messages, according to Peabody Access Telecommunications, the nonprofit that operates the education channel and Peabody’s two other community access channels (9 and 10). As part of the changes, all sporting events and other school-related programming previously airing on channel 10 has shifted to the educational channel and a program schedule has been added to the channel’s display. In addition, school employees can place messages on the channel’s bulletin board from any location that is Web-accessible. “We hope with the changes that it is easier for residents of the city to find programming and useful information that they need in a timely fashion,” said Jim Palmer, production manager at Peabody Access. - John Laidler
