A business that provides television service to the public. The name comes from the coaxial cable that they use to carry the RF television signals from their headend (where they receive the television content) to your house.

Traditionally operated as a monopoly and as a result often had outrageous billing practices. In many places, the delivery of television and telephone service is becoming deregulated so competition between the cable company and the telephone company should start to emerge.
