Advertisements Around me I see they are jacking the fees again. Recently they raised the regional sports fee around $5 or so to 14.45 a month from 9.xx a month. They say because they added a channel where can watch Cubs games (oh boy, I'm a Sox fan.) That is already done, now raising broadcast TV fee from 11.70 to 16.20. So just the fees now will be 30.65 plus the franchise fee of 3.91, $34.56. Yikes. What they call "digital starter" with cable card will now be about $105 a month (70 plus 34.56.) No premium channels. And they just dropped Movieplex which was the one non commercial movie channel included with digital starter. Obviously nothing to be done. Cable cards, I see in another post when renegotiating contracts they might be requiring the return of cable cards to get a package deal. Ours comes due this month, will have to see what they tell us. Cable card pricing, additional outlets, customer owned equipment (Tivo/cable card users) seems to be getting a bit better. But if they won't do any combo deals without giving back the cable cards won't do much good. I'm hoping for the best, will tell them I will NOT change TV service. If they won't at least offer the $20 "bundle" discount will drop internet. Even then I worry about the cable card service.......... For sure I'm not giving them back, unless you have them already I'm guessing getting "new" service with cable cards would be difficult if not impossible.
