Coming April 27, 2015!  Free Seminar for Building Owners & Managers

Know Your Rights When Negotiating Cable Service Contracts

We're bringing back nationally recognized cable and telecommunications expert Ken Fellman to help educate building owners and managers on your rights when negotiating cable service contracts for your building. The seminar will cover new language in Seattle's Cable Code that relates to service for multiple dwelling unit buildings and help answer questions like:

  • What happens when your current cable contract expires?

  • How are service contracts and right-of-entry agreements different?

  • Do you have to sign a long-term cable service agreement?

  • Can you negotiate with the cable operator?

  • Who really owns the cable wiring in your building?

Technology changes fast and it may benefit you to keep long-term options open when it comes to cable and broadband services for your building.
