Cable television, multimedia and public access services within the City and County of Denver are continually evolving, changing, and expanding, as are changes in technology and the service provider climate.  Denver will be renegotiating its cable franchise with Comcast, and the review is underway concerning what terms and conditions might be included in the renewed cable franchise.

This process has sparked many questions for our community.  Will changes in the broadband, cable television and telecommunications marketplace provide new and improved public access services for Denver residents and organizations and at what cost?  What are the current and future public access and cable television related needs of the Denver community?  How might Comcast help meet these needs?

Denver Open Media and the Denver Office of Telecommunications (OTC) need your help in answering these questions. The OTC is currently performing a Public Access Needs Assessment as part of overall community ascertainment activities.  As part of this assessment, a Workshop has been scheduled for Public Access program producers and providers.  You can be a part of shaping the future of cable television and public access in our community by participating in the meeting.
