regional sports fee

During these times of no sports, why are we being charged a Regional Sports Fee? there are NO regional sports going on, so I'm paying for nothing. Can this be removed from my bill or can customers be credited for this as we are not and have not received these services since March?

"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."
