Paragon Cable was a cable system based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and it was owned by Houston Industries.

Formed in the 1980s, Paragon Cable was the largest cable provider in Minnesota with 177,100 subscribers in the Twin Cities and South Central Minnesota. In the latter years, it has expanded to serve other states, such as California, Oregon, Florida and Texas.

In 1995, Houston Industries, Time Warner Inc., and KBLCOM, Inc. has inked an agreement. Under the arrangement, Time Warner Cable would acquire all assets of Paragon Cable and the entire stock of KBLCOM.[1] The deal was finalized in 1999 and all of the Paragon assets were transferred into Time Warner's portfolio, however some headends (like one in Irving, Texas) kept Paragon Cable's verbal ident until late 2000. As for the assets in Florida, they were spun-off to Bright House Networks.
