Broadcast TV fee

Broadcast TV fee- whaat is it and is it mandatory?

Accepted Solution

Re: Broadcast TV fee

Here is some information on the Broadcast TV Fee:

 

Broadcast stations are allowed by the government to charge for their signals, and cable providers like Comcast are required to pay substantial fees in order to carry those signals. In recent years, the cost to retransmit broadcast television signals has more than doubled. The Broadcast TV Fee is an itemized charge on your bill that is intended to offset a portion of the costs of retransmitting broadcast television signals.
