Mayor Michael A. Nutter announced that as part of the City of Philadelphia’s negotiation process with Comcast Corporation to renew its franchise agreement, the City will host several public forums next week to continue its efforts to assess the community’s cable-related needs and interests.

 “Public feedback from Comcast subscribers and residents is critical to the process as we continue to negotiate the renewal of the franchise agreement,” said Mayor Nutter.  “We have been asking for input from the public for more than two years, and the City issued a Community Needs Assessment Report last week based upon what we’ve received so far, but the completion and release of the report does not conclude the City’s efforts to gather as much feedback as it can from citizen’s about their needs, interests and perspectives related to cable service in the city.  We will continue to solicit opinions from the public as we negotiate a deal which will serve Philadelphians for the next fifteen years.”

 On April 9th, the City released a 571-page report on community needs and a technical review of the Comcast cable television system as part of a franchise renewal process involving the City’s four franchise areas. The 15-year cable television franchise agreement, which expires later this year, authorizes Comcast, the current franchise holder, to use public “rights-of-way” for an agreed term of years to operate its cable system and deliver cable service.

 While endorsing the detailed set of recommendations in the report as part of the City’s on-going negotiations with Comcast, Mayor Nutter said the City is also seeking a range of additional improvements in the next franchise agreement, and he announced a significant new level of franchise oversight as part of the current and future agreements.
