Service Complaints

On December 21, 2006, Governor Granholm signed legislation to promote competition for video services in the state of Michigan. Public Act 480 of 2006, or as it is more commonly known, the "Uniform Video Services Local Franchise Act" charges the Michigan Public Services Commission (MPSC) with implementing the Act. The MPSC now has the responsibility to handle cable inquiries and complaints. Click here to register a complaint and additional information.
