Under changes brought by the State legislature and Governor, on September 29, 2006, Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law new legislation that has permanently changed the regulatory scheme for the provision of video TV services (including cable TV) in the State of California. The Digital Infrastructure and Video Competition Act of 2006 (DIVCA) established the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) as the sole video TV franchising authority in the State of California for all new video service providers as well as permitting incumbent cable operators to opt into the state franchising scheme. The City’s incumbent cable operators have done so and are now franchised by the CPUC. DIVCA took effect January 1, 2007.
