DISH will also be adding a fee for regional sports networks in markets that still offer them. This means if you have an NBC Sports network, for example, you will be paying up to an additional $3 a month. DISH’s contract with NBC Sports is reportedly coming to an end soon. This new fee may be a way to help cover the cost of the new contract.

This all comes as AT&T, Comcast, and Spectrum are also raising their prices on TV customers. Spectrum’s TV price hike took effect last October. Comcast is raising its price later this week, and AT&T is raising its TV price in January 2020.
