At this year’s MACo Winter Conference, special guests will join a live recording of the Conduit Street Podcast to discuss the ever-shrinking island of cable television. The session, “New Technology, New Policy – The Ever-Shrinking Island of Cable
Television,” will focus on the county role in the telecommunications market of the 2020s.
New Technology, New Policy – The Ever-Shrinking Island of Cable Television
Description: Technological change continues to advance rapidly – public policy needs to catch up. Your county likely has cable television franchise agreements built for the 1980s, but what is your role in the telecommunications market of the 2020s? MACo’s Conduit Street Podcast will record a live episode with guests to talk through these challenges – with guest speakers to discuss regulation, rights-of-way, taxation, community access, and first amendment issues encountered along the way.
