F.A.Q.

General

What does “co-op” mean?

Cable Co-op is a co-operative, meaning our business is governed by a board of community members who volunteer their time. The board members are not paid and the Cable Co-op itself is a non-profit. The Board is voted upon by fellow cable subscribers, allowing subscribers to be involved in how the Cable Co-op makes decisions that will affect them. There is no CEO, no dividends to pay, and all money earned goes back into the operational aspects of the Cable Co-op. We are truly a unique Cable company in a unique city.

 

Where are you located at?

The Cable Co-op is located at 27 E. College St, Oberlin, OH 44074. We are downtown, across from the Oberlin Inn and three doors down from the Apollo Theater.
