Cable companies are ringing in the new year with price hikes on their TV packages and extra fees. Let’s take a look at how prices are changing for Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, and Dish customers.

Spectrum was the first to alert customers of price changes in the most recent round of increases. Spectrum raised their prices in October, marking the third price hike within 12 months.

Comcast was next with a price increase mid-December. At that time, the broadcast TV price went up about $5/month, along with an increase on the basic TV package, and small increases on various fees that come with Comcast’s TV packages.

“Rising programming costs—most notably for broadcast TV and sports—continue to be the biggest factors driving price increases for all content distributors and their customers,” Comcast said in a statement, according to Consumer Reports. “While we absorb some of the increased programming costs, they have a significant impact on the cost of our services.”

In mid-January, Dish and AT&T customers will also see price hikes.

Dish sent a statement to Cord Cutters News, explaining that TV packages will go up by $5/month due to increased programming costs. Dish points to increases in regional sports network fees as the cause of the increase, which will go into effect in mid-January.

AT&T also named increased programming costs as the cause of their price hike when they explained the changes to customers on their website. According to their chart, TV packages will go up in price anywhere from $1-8/month, along with increases in fees a*sociated with those packages.

While we’ve seen some streaming services increase their prices recently, it’s important to note that cable companies are also implementing price hikes and, in most cases, more frequently and with higher costs

Damn, I don't remember the last time I even had cable. They are just pissed off that so many people are opting to cut the cord and they still have to pay all these networks money to cover their channels. fu*kers are just salty.

We were forced to let cable go years ago. Comcast/Xfinity were robbing us. Bill would be an extra $5 each month. Had to dip and got Playstation Vue. TV and internet has been under 100 monthly ever since. Hate Vue going away. May check out Youtube TV again. They didn’t have sports packages when they first dropped.

Cable is advertised as a must have/necessity and it’s not. Most don’t care about your tv shows, gossip, lies, propaganda, or biased news. Most of us work for a living, have families, or other things to do with our time other than staying glued to a TV. I have Vue but mainly for sports. We can survive without them.... but they can’t survive without us!

Cable TV is a generational necessity. I was a latch key kid growing up in a household that had cable TV in every room. I had cable TV in my room as early as 10 years old and cable in my household for all my life. When I get home the first thing I turn on is a TV rather I am watching it or not. Millenials are the total opposite of me.
Calling fios and giving up some of my channels was like a junkie giving up crack. And I have 3 different iptv services smh
