History

US Cable was founded in 1975 by Stephen E. Myers and Michael Anderson. Through the 70s and 80s, US Cable acquired and built many cable systems. These include some systems that US Cable no longer owns. US Cable had a couple joint ventures with Tele-Communications Inc. (TCI) during the 80s. In 1992, Liberty Media (owned by TCI) acquired 50% of all of US Cable's cable properties. In 1997, TCI purchased all of the systems in Illinois, Indiana, and New Jersey.[1]

US Cable of Paramus-Hillsdale

While most of US Cable Group's systems are operated under US Cable of Coastal-Texas, L.P., one cable system in Northern New Jersey is operated under US Cable of Paramus-Hillsdale, LLC. This system was acquired by Cablevision from TCI along with several other systems in New York and New Jersey in 1998. US Cable bought the system from Cablevision because of an Federal Trade Commission order that required them to divest their assets in those towns to preserve competition.

Other assets
