Comcast's regional sports network fees are also going up, as are set-top rental charges


The number of U.S. consumers subscribing to pay TV and watching broadcast TV continues to decline, but that isn't keeping the No. 1 American cable operator from once again jacking up its broadcast TV surcharge


Comcast last week began giving its remaining 16.6 million video customers a heads-up that the fee they pay to receive local broadcast channels via their Xfinity TV subscription is going up as much as $7 a month.


As blogger Phil Swann noted, users in Taunton, Massachusetts will see their broadcast TV surcharge spike from $18.65 - $26 a month, effective Dec. 20. (Yup, 26 bucks a month for content you can get for free over the airwaves.)

Comcast, of course, is blaming the increase on ever-climbing broadcast retransmission fees it has to pay to local stations. The cable operator said that, on average, its customers will experience broadcast fee increases in the 3.8% range

"TV networks and other video programmers continue to raise their prices, with broadcast television and sports being the biggest drivers of increases in customers’ bills," Comcast said in a statement.

Surcharges for regional sports networks are also going up for Comcast pay TV customers (by less than a dollar a month in most cases). And lease fees for set-tops are also increasing by about $1.50 a month.


image Notably, these fees aren't included in the advertised price for pay TV service


image So a customer agreeing to pay $60 a month for Comcast's 125+ channel "Popular TV" tier will end up shelling out well over $100 a month, once surcharges, CPE fees and taxes are factored in the bill.

Comcast already announced earlier that its broadband service tiers will increase in prices anywhere from $2 - $7 a month.

Comcast lost 562,000 pay TV customers in the third quarter, with its year-over-year cord-cutting pacing at 10.6%

$20? n*gga my Comcast bill was over $280/month. Bought my own modem and router, now my bill per month is $110. This is perfectly fine with me. I’m saving over $100 a month

My phone is my internet and it works as a hot spot too. All for $55 a month. And my phone service gives me hbo max for free. And either way, I got Tubi. Cable is for suckers.

Yes 100 is reasonable. I’m just not cutting it to save 20 or 30 bucks like I said. Yeah my Infiniti triple play so I pay about 230 I believe. It’s a sh*t ton but I run a small business from home so I need the 1g internet, it includes Netflix in the package. When I did the math by just keeping the internet and then paying for my own Netflix etc I would be saving like 30 bucks. I’m like at that rate I ll just keep cable in case my firestick goes out for a while etc

Nah...actually those are all separate entities. Roadrunner and AOL were internet products powered by phone/cable ISPs. Cablevision and Time Warner were their competitors in other regions.

Currently the majors like Xfinity(Comcast) and Spectrum(Time Warner and Charter)have purchased or merged with the others to form monopolies. The FCC fu*ked up by taking the competition out of the game and letting them buy all the mom and pops companies.

Prices about to go crazy...
