Trouble in the States

The following states have had PEG funding eliminated, triggered by a certain date or when a local franchise expires, leaving as many as 500 PEG access channels in jeopardy.

Arkansas

Florida

Georgia

Idaho

Iowa

Kansas

Missouri

Nevada

Ohio

South Carolina

Wisconsin

In California, Illinois and Indiana, cable operators that were operating PEG channels closed the access center doors, sometimes with only 30 days notice.

And even in states where PEG funding remained, channels have been slammed into digital siberia or are subject to reclamation by the cable operators if they don’t meet certain programming criteria.

The clock is ticking, we haven’t a minute to lose. Support ACT Now.
