Do you have Comcast’s Xfinity TV and Internet service? Are you ready to pay over $800 in fees in 2023? You may soon be paying that and maybe more every year in fees on top of their monthly service plan.
Recently it was announced that Comcast would be raising the fees on a wide range of plans. Comcast’s Xfinity Broadcast TV Fee is going up 11% this year to $21.30. Back in 2016, these fees were just $5 a month.
RSN fees are also going up in Philadelphia to $13.35 a month, a 5% jump. This is up from just $3 a month back in 2016.
The cost of a TV box and remote will now be $10 a month, a 17% increase from $8.50 just a month ago.
Modem rentals for internet customers will now cost you $15 a month.
All of this is on top of your base package that can cost as much as $99.99 a month just for TV, according to Seniorliving.org.
All of these fees over the course of a year will add up to $715.80. It could be even higher as this assumes you are only paying for one TV box. If you have two TV boxes, your yearly fees will top $835. That is also before you pay for taxes and other fees imposed by the local, state, and federal governments. In total, the cost for TV and internet from Comcast could top $2,000 a year for some customers with these fees.
As inflation grows, many Americans are looking for areas to cut back. It is no wonder that TV is increasingly one of the areas they are looking to cut back. $2,000 is a significant portion of many Americans’ yearly budgets.
