CMA Member Dave Kraft testifies at August Cable Compliance Review

On August 13 the City held its quarterly Cable Compliance Review, with representatives from Comcast, RCN, CAN TV, the Committee for Media Access and City officials present. CMA Member Dave Kraft took the opportunity to testify about CMA’s concerns over Comcast’s recent decision to stop negotiating its franchise renewal with the City and instead opt for a state cable franchise. CMA members are very concerned about the City losing its authority over cable, and want the City to convene public hearings so we can ask questions and understand what Comcast’s move to a state franchise will mean for city residents, cable customers, and for the future of CAN TV. Residents can now go to the City when there are problems, but that will no longer be true for Comcast once it is under state authority.
