April 23--Eagan residents soon will have a choice other than Comcast when choosing a cable television provider.
A new cable television franchise agreement will bring CenturyLink's service, known as Prism TV, to the city. It was unanimously approved by the Eagan City Council Tuesday.
The up-to-10-year agreement, which will be effective at the end of April, also will allow Eagan Television to deliver its community programming in high definition, the city said.
Meanwhile, negotiations on a new franchise agreement with Comcast continue, the city said.
CenturyLink has aggressive plans to roll out Prism TV throughout the Twin Cities metro area over the next few years.
