Boradcast Service Fee

Boradcast Service Fee

Hi,

are there other customers who have complained about the increase of the service broadcast fee, as I understand this is a hidden price increase which was never clearly communicated to me.

I see there is a open Class Action Law Suite, can anyone share any update on it?

Re: Boradcast Service Fee

Hello wanggolf. 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 providers like Comcast end up paying substantial fees in order to carry them.

Re: Boradcast Service Fee

And the thing for comcast to do would be to allow its customers not to receive and pay additional for channels that they receive for free over the air.   Stop shoving the channels down our thoats and making us pay for them.  You might want to check the number of customers you are loosing becasue of things like this before you price your selves out of the market.

Any change to pricing would be presented on your bill before the change occurs.
