MPSC Reports on the Status of Competition for Video Services in Michigan
  • Based on available data gathered by the Commission through its 2014 survey:

  • Michigan providers reported 2,319,536 video/cable customers – a decrease of 17,020 customers from 2013.  This does not include customers of satellite providers which are not required to have franchise agreements with municipalities.

  • Of the 2,002 current franchise agreements, 1,584 (79 percent) are the Uniform Video Service Local Franchise Agreement. This is an increase of 90 compared to the 2013 data.

  • Providers reported investing over $388 million in the video/cable market in Michigan in 2014 and over $3.1 billion since the Act took effect.

  • The MPSC made four recommendations to the legislature: extending the sunset date for Public Act 191 of 2009, which amended the Uniform Video Services Local Franchise Act (Public Act 480 of 2006), which provides for the MPSC to recover its actual costs in exercising its duties under the Act; changing the due date of the annual report to March 1 from February 1 to provide survey respondents more time to provide information to the MPSC; requiring providers to provide certain contact information to the MPSC; and requiring a provider to notify the Commission if it changes its name, goes out of business, or merges with another company.
