From pioneer broadcasts to modern broadband, Northwest innovators led the nation in the cable TV revolution. Live Wires tells the story of the men and women who launched the first cable systems, shaped an industry, and changed American viewing habits forever.

From tinkerers to telecommunications legends, Northwest cable innovators made TV available to everyone—and made history along the way. What started here soon became a national model for how Americans consumed news and entertainment around the clock.

Featuring rare artifacts, oral histories, and hands-on interactives for young visitors, Live Wires tells the story of how Northwest innovators shaped the viewing habits of a nation.
