Sports Fee on my bill

Sports Fee on my bill

Why am I charged for a Sports Fee of $5.00 if I have not requested PPV?  I would like this charged removed from my previous bills and any bills in the future.  I do not live in NEW MEXICO!

Re: Sports Fee on my bill

Hello, KAHLIL2. This is not a PPV charge, but the Regional Sports Fee. In recent years, costs have risen due to contractual obligations requiring us to offer multiple sports networks in areas, and we want to address these costs through a separate itemized charge in a way that’s that is clear to our customers. Our digital channel lineups include a variety of programming that appeals broadly to our customers' interests, including general entertainment, news and sports programming. We offer these very popular regional sports networks on our most widely distributed levels of service, and this fee covers a small portion of our costs to carry these increasingly expensive channels.

Re: Sports Fee on my bill

So why not charge all fees to those who watch the sports and have the sports package?  Why tack it on to all your customers,even those who don't watch sports, just to make it less expesnive for those who do?  If bringing sports programming to those who want it is so expensive, then they should make the decision to either pay the cost or opt out.

Thanks for your feedback. For the customers who do wish to have additional channels that are not included in the basic channels, we offer a subscription for the Sports Entertainment Package for a monthly fee. We will pass your feedback along. Unfortunately, there are no changes that can be made.
