Public Access Producers in
A threatening item is on the Agenda for the San Antonio City Council meeting on April 5, 2007. Below is a copy of the agenda item. Of note is the part of Alternatives. This request for action basically states that if the AT&T U-Verse test fails, that AT&T should not be required to carry the Public Access, Governmental, or Educational channels (PEG for short), And THAT THE OTHER CABLE COMPANIES SHOULD NOT BE REQUIRED TO AS WELL, which would kill public access. Is this how AT&T is trying to get out of having to carry the public access channels? Inquiring minds want to know. What we have found out about how U-Verse really works can be reviewed in this link
Agenda Item # 23
DEPARTMENT HEAD: Ben Gorzell
COUNCIL DISTRICT(S) IMPACTED:
This ordinance authorizes an agreement with AT&T Texas to conduct
first office application "FOA" for the purposes of AT&T to carry the
City's Public, Education and Government (PEG) programming on its
U-Verse TV Service.
AT&T and the City of
carriage of the City's three PEG channels. The Texas Utilities Code
requires that the City provide PEG programming in a format
compatible with the provider's technology and that the provider
carry the channels after the City has made that request. This
agreement is to test signal compatibility. The City has identified
one point of demarcation for all three PEG channels for AT&T.
Each party will be responsible for its side of the demarcation
point. The City will install transmission equipment to transmit
PEG content. AT&T will install and test encoders to capture the
City's PEG programming. Upon termination of this agreement,
the City is entitled to the equipment installed by AT&T
for the City's PEG channels.
In the Summer of 2006, AT&T Texas began testing the delivery
of IPTV. The City has the right to request that its community
(PEG) channels be carried on its system. Testing is required because
the deliverly of service is different than that of our current cable
operators. The City and AT&T have identified a single point of
demarcation to simplify and reduce the cost of implementation.
AT&T 's system. However, the City should then consider
removing the requirement of its other cable providers
in order to be consistent with our cable/video providers
and to provide consistent cable/video services to citizens. ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????
What the hell is that suppose to mean??????????????????
That they can kill PEG?(edited in)
for the purposes of providing PEG services. Funds have been appropriated
in this 2007 budget to provide connectivity to additional providers.

San Antonio City Council Election Forum held March 26, 2007 for District 8 City Council Seat. Candidates answered questions from the community concerning various issues such as how to protect the Edwards Aquifer (the only fresh water source for San Antonio), the $500 million bond proposal, and how to protect San Antonio trees (many land developers ignore the tree ordinance to protect trees and clear the land completely). This video is also running on Public Access Television in San Antonio Texas during April 2007. Part 1 of 6. For the other 5 parts, go to our other website 411productions.blogspot.com.
