Broadcast TV Fee $31.35 for 10+ Channels to try Xfinity Stream Beta App on Roku

I had a Media Center computer with 2 DRM cards for many years.  I got tired of dealing with the annual call to Xfinity to maintain the 'low' bill.   I dropped the DRM cards, was going to go with Internet only, but was advised that it would be cheaper to include basic TV even if not used.  No one mentioned there was a $ 31.35 broadcase fee for the 10+ channels.  At this point, you can cancel the TV and I'll go back to limited data of 1 TB and simply pay for the data exceeding 1 TB.
