Adelphia rebates sought for L.A.

Abatement should equal 1 month of free basic cable, sez attorney

Scandal-ridden and bankrupt cabler Adelphia Communications should pay about $7.5 million in rebates because it didn’t provide promised services, Los Angeles’ city attorney said last week.

Rocky Delgadillo said Adelphia, whose franchise agreement with the city expires Aug. 2, should offer its 250,000 Los Angeles subscribers a rebate equal to one month of free basic cable, or about $30, because the cable company didn’t deliver promised Internet and broadband upgrades.

Delgadillo said he will recommend the city seek other cable providers unless Adelphia gives out the rebates and pays past-due franchise fees.

Officials at Adelphia couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
