Hi CheriTEA, The Broadcast TV Fee is an itemized charge on the bill that recovers a portion of the costs of retransmitting broadcast television signals. Broadcast stations have the right to charge for their signals, and cable providers like Comcast end up paying substantial fees in order to carry them.
In recent years, our costs to retransmit broadcast television signals has more than doubled, and this itemized charge will make it clearer for customers to see the factors that are driving price changes.
This fee is for all TV levels and not assessed if you just have internet services.
