Cable customers hit with $450 per year in hidden fees, Consumer Reports claims

Consumer Reports claimed that cable companies about 10 years ago began throwing on additional fees – like Broadcast TV Fee, Regional Sports Surcharge, HD Technology Fee, and Network Access and Maintenance Fee – on top of the advertised rates for packages. The publication estimated that these company-imposed fees cost consumers about $37 per month (or $450 per year). The publication also claimed that the average cable bill includes 13 line item charges, and that pay TV providers could be making an estimated $28 billion a year from charging company-imposed fees. – Ben Munson, FierceVideo » https://ift.tt/2Oo5Qfg [photo: Orin Zebest/Fickr]
