Aldermen State Expectations for Comcast Renewal

CMA members want to commend those Aldermen who voiced their support of CAN TV during the budget hearing for the Department of Business Affairs & Consumer Protection (BACP) on November 7. 

A number of Aldermen spoke up about the Comcast franchise renewal, and said they expect Comcast to match the public benefits agreement provided in the RCN franchise.  BACP Commissioner, Rosemary Krimbel, agreed that is her goal. 

We are also pleased that the Commissioner acknowledged having met with CMA members and said, “All together, we are trying to strengthen and promote community access to local cable television.”

CAN TV has posted this update with more detail about the hearing.
