Explain the "broadcast tv fee"

Gold Problem Solver

Re: broadcast tv fee

All TV service customers pay the Broadcast TV fee. It's essentially a mechanism for raising prices for TV service on the sly, even for customers who are under contract. It also allows them to advertise a price for TV service that is lower than what you actually pay -- the fees are buried in the fine print.

 

Comcast's explanation is at https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/most-common-taxes-fees-surcharges-on-your-bill.

The Broadcast TV fee has increased annually from $18 a few years ago to a whopping $96 today ($1.50 to $8.00 monthly).  Outrageous!

Hi tv_dp, 

 

Sorry you feel this way. We worked hard to minimize impact to our customers despite the increase in programming & operating costs. For more information: Learn More about the Taxes, Fees and Other Charges on Your Bill
