Are you ready to pay a lot in fees to watch “free” over-the-air television? On April 1, 2024, Comcast released a new rate card and Cord Cutters News received a copy of the San Francisco rate card that shows local TV stations like ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC now cost $26.70 a month and local RSN costs are $18.75 a month. Put these two fees together and you pay $45.45 a month extra for the channels they advertise as a part of the TV package.

Over the course of a year local TV stations and RSNs will cost Comcast Xfinity TV customers in these areas $545.40 a year.

The fees don’t stop there. If you want the NFL RedZone that will cost $9.99 a month. HD Technology fees cost $9.95 a month for the ability to watch the channel in HD. Want a DVR?  That will be an additional $10 a month; premium DVR costs $20 a month; and an extra 150 hours of storage will cost $10 a month.

These fees can quickly add up to over $85 a month if you want NFL RedZone, DVR with 150 hours of storage, and HD channels on along with the costs to watch your locals.

Comcast’s popular TV package with HD programing, sports, kids, family, and 20 hours of DVR costs $60 a month. If you just add your locals, that cost is $105.45 a month. If you add the other fees, the cost increases even more.

Don’t worry: the fees don’t stop there. If you want extra cable boxes because you own more than one TV that will be an extra $10 a month on top of the $105.45.

When you put that all together you can see why in 2023 a growing number of Americans ditched cable TV companies like Comcast and started to stream online.

These fees will vary by market, but this is a good idea what you will pay for Comcast depending on where you live.
