ACTION Adopt Resolution No. 10003 authorizing the Mayor to execute Contract #2015-017-COS, a Cable Television License renewal with Qwest Broadband Services, Inc., dba CenturyLlnk.

BACKGROUND In June 1997, the City Council approved a cable television license (Ordinance No. 3046) for U S WEST Communications to provide cable television services to residents in DC Ranch. U S WEST obtained approval to expand the services t o include all areas within the city's boundaries in September 1998 (Ordinance No. 3185). In December 2003, Ordinance No. 3529 was approved to combine the two original licenses into a new cable television license that expired on September 14, 2013. During 2014, QBSI upgraded the cables and electronic equipment in their network to launch "Prism TV" - a cable television service that is designed to provide a better experience for the customers. The number of Scottsdale households subscribing to Prism TV has grown from 500 customers in December 2013, to more than 1,700 customers as of December 2014. This cable television license renewal will go into effect on February 1, 2015 and will expire on December 3 1 , 2024. (NOTE: In 2000, U S WEST Communications merged with Qwest Communications, and in 2011, Qwest Communications merged with CenturyLlnk. Despite the most recent merger, the operating entity for the cable television license has remained Qwest Broadband Services, Inc. (QBSI) and it will remain so for this license renewal.)

ANALYSIS & ASSESSMENT Policy Implications Since 1998, QBSI has been providing cable television service to residents of Scottsdale as a competitor to Cox Communications. At its peak in June 2007, QBSI had approximately 5,000 customers in Scottsdale. In 2010, QBSI decided to severely scale back its cable television services to Action Taken

City Council Report | Cable Television License Renewal - QBSI dba CenturyLlnk customers in Arizona, resulting in a dramatic decline in the number of customers to less than 100 in July 2013. In the Fall of 2013, QBSI began offering their Prism TV cable services and they have reported steady growth each month for the past year.

RESOURCE IMPACTS Staffing, Workload Impact The cable license renewal will not have any impact on staff or workload as the contract administrator has been managing this license as part of his normal duties.

Future Budget Implications The cable license revenues for QBSI are projected to increase as they continue to have more residents subscribe to their services; however, it is unclear if these new customers are existing customers of Cox, which would result in a net zero impact to total city cable revenues.

OPTIONS & STAFF RECOMMENDATION Recommended Approach Adopt Resolution No. 10003 authorizing the Mayor to execute Contract #2015-017-COS, a Cable Television License renewal with Qwest Broadband Services, Inc., dba CenturyLlnk.
