Billing

I want to know why my bill reflects a regional sports fee for $5.00 and broadcast TV fee for $7.00. I don't ever watch sports so I don't want to pay this fee. How do I get rid of it?

Hi, I moved your post from the app thread to the billing area of the forum.

Re: Billing

Hello krubenzer,

The Broadcast TV Fee is an itemized charge that recovers a portion of the costs of re-transmitting broadcast television signals. Broadcast stations have the right to charge for their signals, and cable provides like Comcast end up paying substantial fees in order to carry them.

 

The Regional Sports Fee is an itemized charge that recovers a portion of the costs of broadcasting multiple regional sports networks to our standard video services. The fee applies to XFINITY TV customers receiving Digital Starter and above, as well as Starter Latino TV/XFINITY TV 450 Latino service tier.
