Comcast continues to nickel & dime even with a 20% Increase in Net Income this Quarter

Comcast continues to nickel & dime even with a 20% Increase in Net Income this Quarter

I cannot abide by greed.  Slow incremental increases to bills are unwarranted, regardless of our living in a capitalist system.  I am reading how their business has done phenomenally in 2017 so far.  Why would you increase my teeny tiny insignificant digital adapter from $4 to $6?  I cannot afford HD quality anything, everything is slightly grainy, but I accept it. And the broadcast fee from $5 to $7?  Is this how you receive your financial gains every year, by slowly chipping away at our personal finances?  If you charge more, ever, you need to OFFER MORE, it is so disheartening to monitor every bill like the weariest of hawks.  If you felt the need to raise the price, throw in HD, something, anything, to stop annoying people every few months.

Hello Statichristy. We're sorry you feel that way. As we continue to make improvements to our products and services, and as programmers charge more to carrier their networks, our cost of doing business increases. As a result, prices for certain services and fees have increased. 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.
