(a) In lieu of the franchise fee required by Section 2.10.250, an OVS franchisee shall pay to the city a fee in an amount equal to five percent of the gross revenues of the OVS franchisee or its affiliates, or such other amount as may be specified in the franchise; provided, however, that if the franchise specifies an amount, that amount shall be subject to modification in the event federal limits on fee payments are modified and other operators are subject to the same modified fee.
(c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, where the OVS franchisee charges a person other than an affiliate, to use its OVS (the "use payments"); and that person recovers those use payments through charges to its subscribers that are included in that person's gross revenues and that person fully recovers the use payments through the charges to its subscribers and pays a fee on those charges pursuant to Section 2.10.350(b); then the OVS franchisee may deduct from its gross revenues the use payments it receives from that person.
