Comcast keeps changing its channel lineup. Since it has switched to digital and the TV sets in the high school don't have converters, TV in the high school is via the internet.

Some of the links on this page may still be useful.

Martha's Vineyard Cable Channel Line-Up

Comcast has moved to the airport at 19 East Line Road.

Say goodby to the TV Guide channel. C Span2, Country Music Television and Hallmark unless you want to pay additional bucks per month for a digital cable box and even more additional bucks for a pricing tier that actually carries these channels.

July 2008 Comcast continues to offer less for more. Its latest improvement to the cable line up is to move MSNBC, TruTV (formerly Court TV), Oxygen and the Eternal World Television Network away from the lower, less expensive tier, to the digital (read more expensive) tier. Sorry Keith Olbermann, we hardly knew you.

April 2009 Comcast continues its policy of whittling away at analog users. Now it is channels 10 and 76 that they are taking away.
