RCN Franchise Renewal Supports CAN TV

The week of April 16, the Chicago City Council will vote on a precedent setting agreement for RCN, the first of three cable companies to renew its franchise in Chicago. The 10-year agreement ensures CAN TV’s independence and increases its future stability.

WHO BENEFITS? You do. CAN TV channels are the public’s channels.


  • THANK your Alderman - 46 out of 50 Aldermen told RCN they would only support a franchise deal that supports the public. Urge them to vote YES on the RCN franchise renewal. (Find your Alderman here.)
