We are excited to announce that the Beaver Nation Network (Channel 30 for Triovision Cable TV subscribers) has been activated!  Our first live broadcast of a school event aired on Friday, September 27th which is a football game vs. Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan.  In the meantime Triotel cable subscribers can tune to channel 30 and view the material that is currently being brodcast to all TrioVision cable subscribers.  The channel is the offspring of our Arts and Audio/Visual program here at Hanson High School.  We are excited about the opportunity to connect the school with our community as well as the chance to showcase the creative and technical talents of our students.  The program and network is new to Hanson High School and we look forward to witnessing the growth of our program and our students' work as their education in this area moves forward.  The network will carry many home live activities as well as productions created by the students in the program.  Events will also be re-played periodically on the network. 
Live events will also be webcast through a web site called  If you navigate to and search:  "Hanson" this will take you to our own section of the website where you will be able to watch live webcasts of events as well as archived events.  This will be great for family and friends that do not reside within the Triotel viewing area.  However, much of the content produced for the channel will not be available through but only on channel 30 on TrioVision.
This is a very exciting time at Hanson High School and we encourage all to check out Channel 30 on TrioVision.
