Peabody's calling all cable providers

(Continued)

Netflix provides movies and more, all available in high-definition via a wireless router, an Internet connection, and a device like a PlayStation or Xbox. It’s the same way Hulu Plus offers network television shows, Hu said, albeit on a slightly delayed basis.

More difficult to find is sports programming, for example NESN. But Hu notes that there are already ways to get some sports programming.

“You do need to have the Internet connection,” he said, which often comes via companies like Verizon and Comcast.

It’s all a far cry from the days not so long ago when a fuzzy image reached viewers via rabbit ears. Bettencourt is still eager to get a better picture.

“We recognize the benefit of having more than one provider of cable, phone and Internet service,” he writes. “If another provider sees a market in Peabody, we are all ears.”
