ANSWERED: What is the Xfinity Regional Sports Fee and Frequently Asked Questions
Regional Sports Network Fee
The Regional Sports Network Fee is an itemized charge that you'll see on your bill. This charge is not a government-mandated fee and will increase from time to time. It's based on our costs of providing the regional sports networks that we carry on our cable systems in each area. These costs include the fees that regional sports networks charge us to carry them on our cable systems, which are among the fastest growing components of our programming costs. The Regional Sports Network Fee is not included as part of our promotional pricing or pricing under your minimum-term agreement and can increase during your promotion or minimum-term. You'll receive advance notice before an increase takes effect.
Where is the Regional Sports Network Fee located on my bill?
The Regional Sports Network Fee is located in the Service Fees section of your monthly billing statement for most customers
Why isn't there an additional fee for cable sports networks like ESPN?
This only covers regional sports networks at this time; therefore, ESPN and other cable sports networks aren't included.
Why do all customers have to pay for regional sports channels as part of their Xfinity TV service with this fee, even if they don't watch them?
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 subscribed levels of service. All customers receiving the bundle of channels that includes regional sports networks pay the associated Regional Sports Network Fee.
