For over 50 years, Trans-Video has been providing the greater Northfield, VT area with the best-available communications services and unparalleled customer support. We have evolved as the industry has, continually investing in the latest technology. Today we are proud to offer our customers digital cable television, high-speed Internet access and digital phone service with the kind of personal service that only comes from a local, family-owned company.
So how did it all begin?
Well, it was 1951, and word was spreading fast that George Goodrich Sr. and his buddies had found a way to watch the Saturday night wrestling events on TV. Television reception wasn’t available down in the valley of Northfield, so George Sr. drove a milk delivery truck loaded with equipment to the top of a local mountain to receive the far away signal.
It wasn’t long before everyone wanted to enjoy this new type of entertainment. Luckily, George owned the local phone company as well as the poles in town, so he was soon able to begin installing cables to homes throughout the area. With cable television in its infancy, most of the equipment necessary was made here locally as there simply wasn’t a source for this type of electronics.
And so, from such humble beginnings, Trans-Video was born — the first cable company in Vermont. The industry has certainly changed over the years, but our focus on serving the local community has not.
