  2.  Any indemnification provided in subsection 1 of this section shall include, but not be limited to, the political subdivision's reasonable attorneys' fees incurred in defending against any such claim, suit, or proceeding prior to the entity holding the video service authorization assuming such defense.  The political subdivision shall notify the entity holding the video service authorization of claims and suits within seven business days of its actual knowledge of the existence of such claim, suit, or proceeding.  Failure to provide such notice shall relieve the entity holding the video service authorization of its obligations under this section.  Once the entity holding the video service authorization assumes the defense of any such action, the political subdivision may, at its option, continue to participate in the defense at its own expense.

  3.  The obligation to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend contained in subsections 1 and 2 of this section shall not apply to any claim, suit, or cause of action related to the provision of public, educational, and governmental channels or programming or to emergency interrupt service announcements.
