Irving will pursue legal action against three major streaming services — Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ — to collect franchise fees.

The move comes as customers have shifted from traditional cable TV providers, such as AT&T, which are required to pay franchise fees to cities, to streaming services, which do not pay such fees.
