Who should I contact to resolve issues or complaints with my cable company?
To resolve any issues or complaints you have with your cable provider, contact them directly. As the franchise authority for both Comcast and CenturyLink, ParkTV staff can help if you have been unable to resolve issues or complaints with either provider.
Note: ParkTV staff can’t access your account information for either provider or resolve your problem directly; instead they will contact the cable companies on your behalf to help resolve issues.
Call 952.928.2856 Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., if working with your cable provider has been unsuccessful.
