Regional Sports Fee

Why are customers paying a tax for watching sports? This is XFINITY GREED AT ITS HIGHEST!! If a sitcom is on my local station, should I be charged a "comedy fee"? No, that would be  ridiculous. Also, this is MOST IMPORTANT, WE HAVE NO SPORTS, REGIONAL, OR COUNTRY WIDE! WHY ARE WE BEING CHARGED FOR WATCHING RERUNS OF SPORTS! THE ENTIRE WORLD IS IN A PANDEMIC! Please Xfinity do the smart thing and remove the Regional Sports Fee, from my bill.

"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."
