There are plenty of channels to choose from, but the city is fighting to protect some of them.

AZ: Customers, Legislature, Cox put city on the ropes

Posted on February 26, 2007 - 7:48am.

Note: Arizona passed a form of statewide video franchise last year. Now Tucson is in a struggle with COX, the local cable provider which is playing hard ball in negotiations and is now attempting to push through more legislation, HB 2069, that would force cities to accept the state franchise from cable companies. We can expect to see these battles arise around the country as more statewide franchises are forced upon cities.
