TCA was founded in 1960 to represent the cable industry, which began as a way to bring television to homes in remote areas that were unable to receive conventional over-the-air broadcast signals. Over the years, TCA has provided its member companies with a single, unified voice on issues affecting the cable and telecommunications industry in Texas. TCA is proud of the role the cable industry has played in development of competition for video, high-speed Internet and telephone services in Texas. Link to system member bylaws.
