Regional Cable TV Advisory Councils 

Regional Cable TV Advisory Councils are responsible for advising the Certificate of Cable Franchise Authority (newer certificate type) or Certificate of public convenience and necessity (original certificate type) cable tv provider in their franchise region. Several regional Cable TV Advisory Councils maintain web sites. These links are to those that are known to us as of April, 2019. If you know of a regional Cable TV Advisory Council web site not listed here, please use the Contact form to tell us about it.  The advisory councils are listed below using the franchise region names used by PURA. Most, if not all, of the advisory councils choose their own name for their council.
