Stop Bad Cable Fees
Cable companies must stop sneaking misleading fees into our bills.Sign PetitionSign Petition
Additional add-on charges, such as "broadcast TV fees" and "regional sports fees," are inflating consumers' cable bills each month. Often these fees can be imposed even if you're locked into a promotional rate for your service. And some of these fees are increasing as much as 50 percent per year.
Given the rampant increase of company-imposed fees and the resulting confusion among consumers, companies must become more transparent about pricing. We are calling on cable companies to eliminate hidden fees and advertise the full price of their service so that consumers can effectively comparison shop.
We urge all pay-TV providers and ISPs to include the full cost of service in the base price so that consumers know the actual price they will pay, and can effectively compare the prices of different services.
