3 RESIDENTIAL TELEPHONE SURVEY RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY NEEDS ASSESSMENT Introduction As part of cable television franchise renewal proceedings for the City of Baltimore ( City or Baltimore ) franchise area, the City conducted a random telephone survey of Baltimore residents that were Comcast cable television subscribers and non-subscribers to document needs and interests related to Comcast cable television service. The findings are based on telephone interviews conducted with a random sampling of franchise area residents during June Of those interviewed, 300 were Comcast cable television subscribers and 300 were not. Statisticians have created a confidence rating in field survey research based on sample size. A sample size of 600 randomly sampled residents provides for a margin of error of 4 percent. In other words, if this study were to be replicated among another random sample of Baltimore franchise area residents, one can feel confident that these same findings would be repeated within 4 percentage points of the scores reported in this study. Interviews with Comcast cable subscribers lasted, on average, twelve minutes. The instruments used during field research were specifically designed to examine several areas of Comcast cable television service. These included, but are not limited to: Respondents familiarity and experiences with Comcast. Reasons non-subscribers do not subscribe to Comcast cable television service or stopped subscribing to Comcast. Amount of the average monthly cable bill (all services and fees). Type of cable television package subscribed to by respondents. Other services subscribed to with Comcast (telephone and Xfinity broadband). General level of satisfaction with Comcast cable television service. Suggestions on how to improve the services provided by Comcast. List of specific channels with poor picture quality or poor audio quality. Ratings of communication and service experiences with Comcast, including telephone-based customer service and billing services provided by the company. The number of cable outages and subscriber experiences with restoration of services. Awareness and opinions of government (CharmTV), education and public access programming currently offered on the cable system and future interest in local programming. Non-subscribers were also asked about their interest in receiving local access programming. Quality of the picture and sound of local access programming and evaluation of the programming s informational and entertainment value. Interest in receiving a local public safety access channel Ability to view access programming in HD and via the On Demand feature of the Comcast cable television system. 1 A symbol of N will be used periodically throughout this report to denote total responses.

4 Research Methodology A contracted telephone research firm, Issues and Answers, Inc., conducted telephone interviews using randomly drawn landline and cellular telephone numbers. Issues and Answers has more than 40 years of combined experience in social science research using telephone survey methodology and operates four call centers around the country. Calls were placed during a variety of times of day, during weekdays and on weekends, to ensure that all sets of lifestyles were represented in the data collected. Issues and Answers utilized trained interviewers and a continuous call back procedure to ensure the reliability and validity of the data collected. Telephone numbers were identified using random digital dialing from Baltimore area landline and cell phone numbers. Continuous callbacks were made to numbers without answers and to numbers with answering machines or voice mail so that these numbers were not removed from the pool of potential respondents. The survey instrument was designed by CBG Communications and Dr. Constance Book with consultation with, assistance from, and approval of, representatives of the City of Baltimore.
