I wrote this article way back when TKR took over for Hamilton's original cable provider, "HAMILTON CABLEVISION." Cable TV has made massive strides these 23 years later. We have all kinds of accessory appliances at hand today which enhance our viewing. I remember when we had channels 3, 6, and 10. They were all on what was known as the coaxial cable. A network that stretched from upper New York state down to the Washington D.C. area. Remote controls were unheard of. A typical TV set had a 10 inch screen; much larger than the old 6" screen that was on many early sets. The article was written when cable TV was relatively new. I was one of the early talk show host on Hamilton Cable when they opened on Benson Avenue back in the early 1980's. We had a home channel selector with 3 rows of buttons. Each row chose a channel. A number of us figured out how to jury rig those old units in order to get the pay channels.
