Are you ready to pay more? As a new year draws to a close cable TV is back to their old ways of raising prices. Recently Comcast has quietly started to announce new pricing for almost everything. Thanks to a few readers who sent us their price increase notices we now have a break down of what Comcast is doing.
Want TV? Get ready to pay between $1 and $5 a month more for your base cable TV package. Want to add a premium channel? Comcast is raising the price of many premium channels including Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, and the Movie Channel $2 a month. In the past they cost just $10, now you will pay $12 a month.
Miss a payment? The late fee for Comcast is going up to $10 for every missed payment. Are you renting a modem? That will now cost $11 a month up $1 a month.
Even Internet is going up again—about $2 a month on average. Want the Internet Plus Latino option? That is going up $3 a month to $75.95 a month.
This is nothing new. It seems like almost a yearly tradition for cable networks. Although Comcast is the first one I have heard of raising their prices, they likely won’t be the last.
The good news is you can still dump cable TV and become a cord cutter. With fees like this cord cutting is looking better every day.
