Cable Television In Metro Denver. Background and Policy Issues For Local Decision-Making.
Bortz, Paul I.; Gilmore, John S.
A general introduction to cable television (CATV) in the metropolitan Denver area, with a focus on policy issues for local decision-making, is provided. The overview is based upon a literature review, information presented at conferences, local surveys of CATV, interviews with people involved with CATV, and on-going research conducted by the Denver Research Institute. A scenario describing a possible course of events associated with cable development in metro Denver serves to introduce policy questions. Following this, brief summaries give background information on cable and discuss major issues such as Federal regulation, ownership, cost, public access channels, minority access to CATV, impact on local programing, interconnection of cable systems, and cable franchising and ordinances. Three appendixes provide detailed information on Federal Regulations, on cable technology and applications, and on the status of cable development in the Denver area. (Author/LB)
