Comcast will be doing another round of price hikes at the beginning of the new year, with prices going up on cable, internet, and voice packages. The company is now notifying customers of the increases.
With the price hike, Comcast Xfinity’s broadcast TV fee will increase, along with the regional sports fee. The fee to use Comcast’s TV box and remote will also get an increase, for those who rent the equipment from the company. Comcast Xfinity Internet customers will also see their bill go up by $3.
A Reddit user shared their notice from Comcast on Sunday.
In a statement to The TV Answerman, a Comcast spokesperson said “Rising programming costs – most notably for broadcast TV and sports – continue to be the biggest factors driving price increases for all content distributors and their customers, not just Comcast. We’re continuing to work hard to manage these costs for our customers while investing in our network to provide the best, most reliable broadband service in the country and the flexibility to choose our industry-leading video platform with X1 or the highest quality streaming product with Flex, the only free streaming TV device with voice remote that’s included with broadband service.”
Comcast increases its fees in January 2020, following similar cable bill increases at AT&T and DIRECTV.
