Dec 13 - Comcast (CMCSA) to Hike Monthly Fees by 3.8% from 2017
 

 
According to a recent report by TV Predictions.com, Comcast Corp. CMCSA, a leading cable multi-service operator (MSO) in the U.S., recently announced plans to increase the monthly price of its TV, Internet and video services, by an average of 3.8% nationally. The effective date of the fee increases will however vary from one market to another, with some areas seeing price hikes from as early as Jan 1, 2017 and others at a later date.

We note that on Dec 5, U.S. telecom and pay-TV behemoth AT&T Inc. T had also announced a price hike for eight of its nine base packages of DirecTV from $2 to $6 per month. The new rates will be effective from Jan 22, 2017.

Revised Pricing Plans

The ‘Broadcast TV Fee’ will increase from $5 to $7 a month, while the fee that covers Regional Sports Networks will be up from $3 to $5 a month. Combined, that's a change from $8 to $12 per month. Hence, Comcast will receive an extra $48 per year from each of its customers.

The cable MSO has already started notifying its customers and city officials about its price increase plans through letters and recent bills, along with a rate sheet that shows the new charges for various services. For any further details related to taxes, fees and surcharges on their bills, customers can visit visit this link www.xfinity.com/pricechanges.

Customers in Lake Township and Michigan have been notified that the Digital Starter and Digital Preferred video plans will each increase by $1 per month. Some services in Michigan will however cost less. The one-time charge for professional installation will decrease from $75 to $60, and the charge for other in-home service visits will decrease from $70 to $60. The charge for a self-installation kit will rise from $9.95 to $15,though. But not all cities apparently will see a hike in these packages.

For Central New Jersey residents, the digital adapter outlet fees will increase from $3.49 to $5.49 per outlet, and fees to reactivate the TV service will go up from $1.99 to $3.50.

Officials in Montqomery Country, MD and some other markets have been notified of increases in several Comcast ‘Double Play plans’ as well from Jan 1. For instance, the Internet Plus plan will now cost $82.95 per month compared with $77.95 earlier. Fees of Internet Pro Plus with Showtime will increase from $81.95 to $86.95 per month while that of Internet Pro Plus With HBO plan will increase from $84.95 to $89.95 per month. The Premier XF Double Play package will increase from $182.95 to $187.99 per month. The cost of Preferred XF Double Play package will increase from $144.95 to $149.85 per month.

Similar hikes of $5 per month will also hit many of the Xfinity video monthly packages. For instance, price of the Performance plan will rise from $69.95 to $74.95 per month; the Performance Pro plan will go up from $79.95 to $84.95 per month; and the cost of the Blast plan will rise from $82.95 to $87.95 per month.

Price Performance

Shares of Comcast have had an impressive run in the past one year. Year to date, Comcast’s growth of 22.28% has outpaced the Zacks categorized Cable TV Market industry's growth of 16.35%.

cable cartel mafia customers should be able to choose the channels they want to watch. this plan would cost maybe $3 a channel with the 93 fees/taxes included. the local channels would still be free

fu*k comcast.

I couldnt pay them 190 so they shut my sh*t off.

5 days later they called me looking for $400

I went the fu*k off!

Ended up getting 9 free days as well.
In the end they stopped me from cutting the cord and they still get to charge me another bill so i guess they win.
