United Cable of Los Angeles is seeking a third extension of its deadline for providing cable television service to the East San Fernando Valley, the company's president said.
United Cable has completed just over half of the 935 miles of its installations.
William Cullen, president of the company, said Saturday that the city Board of Telecommunications has recommended that City Council approve the deadline extension from June, 1988, to December, 1988.
In 1983, United Cable and the city of Los Angeles entered a franchise agreement to provide cable service from Mission Hills to Studio City.
Under the agreement, the city will receive 5% of the company's gross revenue, which is expected to reach about $25 million a year, Cullen said.
