Comcast Franchise Agreement
Calvert County Cable Franchise Renewal

Calvert County Government is in the final stages of the process to develop a new franchise agreement with Comcast. The agreement covers the provision of cable television service in Calvert County. By law, cable franchise agreements only address cable television services, not internet service.

The Board of County Commissioners held a public hearing Nov. 27 to consider and receive comments on the proposed agreement that was developed over a 12-month negotiation process. The new agreement covers a 10-year term.

Overview
The cable franchise agreement allows cable television providers to build and operate cable systems in county rights-of-way in exchange for providing cable service to residents. The agreement details which areas will be provided service and covers other services such as public access channels, funding to support local programming, studios and equipment, and more.

Comcast has a non-exclusive franchise in Calvert County. While any cable provider can petition the county to provide service, Comcast is currently the only provider to enter the Calvert County market.
