@santia44 The regonial sports fee is a tax. Its a fee for broadcasting local sporting events. You won't be able to remove that. Anyone with TV service is subejct to that fee. -RespectedWisdom

That's incorrect. See https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/most-common-taxes-fees-surcharges-on-your-bill. The regional sports fee is not a tax and can be avoided if you choose a TV service tier that does not include regional sports networks, like Limited Basic, Family tier, and Digital Economy.

This fee is based upon the fees that regional sports networks charge us to carry their networks. We pay over and above this fee to meet our obligation to regional sports networks in order to carry their networks. -Respectedwisdom

 

Regional Sports Network Fee
The Regional Sports Network Fee is an itemized charge that you will see on your bill. This is not a government-mandated or required fee and will increase from time to time. This fee is based upon the fees that regional sports networks charge us to carry their networks. We pay over and above this fee to meet our obligation to regional sports networks in order to carry their networks. Regional sports networks have begun to increase their charges regularly, and we have limited control over the amount or pace of these increases. As a result, the Regional Sports Network Fee is not included in our promotional pricing or pricing under your minimum-term agreement and can increase during your promotion or minimum-term. You will receive advance notice before an increase takes effect.

It isn't a tax no, but you can not have Starter/Standard level of TV service or higher, and not have this fee on your bill.
