Frontier cites opposition of Charter-TWC deal as it looks to get Minnesota video franchise

Frontier is voicing its opposition of Charter Communications' (NASDAQ: CHTR) purchases of Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) and Bright House Networks to the FCC following Charter's move to block Frontier's pursuit of a video franchise agreement in Minnesota.

On Monday, Farmington, Minnesota officials are conducting a public hearing to consider Frontier's request to bring its Vantage video service to the city.

Charter, which holds the city's sole cable franchise and an extension to a franchise agreement that expired Dec. 31, is trying to block Frontier's move to enter the city's video market as an alternative provider. LeeAnn Herrera, director of government affair for Charter, alleges that Frontier hasn't complied with state laws. FierceCable has this report.
