Cable/Video Television Regulation in California

The Digital Infrastructure and Video Competition Act of 2006 (DIVCA) established the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) as the sole cable/video TV franchising authority in the State of California.

Video Services Regulatory Division

ITA’s Video Services Regulatory Division advises the Mayor and City Council on certain issues relating to video/cable TV services and private telecommunications franchises. The Division regulates and monitors the compliance of video/cable TV services and franchises issued by the CPUC. More specifically, it ensures that video/cable TV service providers comply with local, state and federal laws and oversees the video/cable TV service interests of City residents.
