Paying for Sports?

One would think with COVID-19 there would be a discount to cable packages. Comcast should make all their channels available to everyone at this point. <Edited>. Quit charging full price for services that aren’t being provided. For example, why am I paying for sports when there are no live sports going on? Internet service is subpar. I’m really regretting going back to Comcast for my cable and internet. Someone needs to fix this <Edited>

"The regional sports network fee is based on the costs Xfinity pays to carry regional sports channels in each area, regardless of what is or is not aired.  Once the NBA, NHL, and MLB announce the course of action for its seasons, including the number of games that will be played, Xfinity could received rebates or price adjustments from the regional sports networks.  Just as we pass on costs of carrying these networks to our customers, we will also pass along any savings from rebates or price adjustments we receive."
