These broadcast fees are outrageous! I have a package (phone, Gigabit ethernet, and a very basic cable lineup without any sports) with Verizon Fios and the taxes and fees are aroud $25. If sports were included it would be an additional $10. Just crazy!!
You are probably on a Grandfathered plan that will be cheaper than the new Mix & Match plans, but you should check/shop it. They have eliminated the broadcast and sports fees and most taxes (I pay 31 cents on the cabelCARD) on the new non-contract plans. I realize they have simply rolled in the fees and increased the price, but, I feel better not seeing them. 😀 I also HATE those fees, especially for watching channels that are free OTA. This package includes my RSN NESN with NHL & NFL. I know the prices have gone up since I signed, but I know they have eliminated those fees.

Lucky you being given the STB credit. I've tried on multiple occasions to get that but every rep has said it's a separate charge now -- i.e. not included in the TV package -- so I don't get the credit.
Well it was part of the deal with Mix & Match 1.0. With M&M 2.0, it looks like they are still including it, but they bumped up the price $9 plus now they are now including DVR service. I would return the STB if they did charge me, since I use TiVo.
