Cable Related Community Needs Assessment

While there have been 20 states that have passed state-wide/state-issued cable franchising laws, in most states local cable franchising still continues.  It’s important for local governments to know what their communities need and know their rights under the Cable Acts of 1984 and 1992.

We provide:

  • Document Review of existing cable franchise agreements
  • Focus Group sessions with key community stakeholders
  • In-depth review of Public, Educational and Government (PEG) access television facilities.
  • Community surveys.

Our needs assessment process is thorough and gives you the ability to go to negotiations with objective information about your community’s cable related needs.

Negotiations Assistance

We work with you to make sure you have the best cable franchise possible.  After all, cable franchises last 10 to 15 years, it’s important that they provide your community with the best possible opportunity for fair compensation.
