“You can’t keep raising the price forever,” [CEO Brian Roberts] said, referring to cable bundles. While content prices are driving up pay-TV bills, Roberts added that “these things have a way of correcting and balancing out before something draconian happens.” […] Entry-level rates are getting bigger increases, about 4.5 percent for TV and Internet service, The Oregonian reported last week. “The cost of Comcast’s standard, 140-channel Digital Starter package is rising by $3.25 a month to $75.74,” the newspaper wrote. “The cost of its standard Performance Internet service is increasing by $3 a month, to $69.95; the company’s rate cards indicate speeds will climb from 50 to 75 megabits per second.” – Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica
