Upcoming Webinar: What Municipal Officials Need to Know About Cable TV Franchising Today!

Wednesday, December 18, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This summer the Federal Communications Commission voted to make dramatic changes to cable franchise agreements, many of which are managed by municipal governments.  These changes may have serious negative impacts on cities and towns that collect franchise fees from cable operators.

This webinar will cover the basics of what you need to know for negotiating a franchise agreement with your local cable TV company.  This includes a review of key features of cable television franchise agreement, how your cable television franchise may affect broadband in your community, as well as how the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) recent order on cable television franchising may reduce franchise fees and formerly “free” services in New Hampshire communities.
