said by DirecTV Website :
These local RSN(s) are included in most base packages, but there are some that do not include RSNs and are not subject to a Regional Sports Fee
I read it the same way you did. This isn't an extra fee being pushed on people who watch sports, or on those who subscribe to sports packages. The fee will apply to everyone subscribing to any package in an area that happens has a Regional Sports Network. And even DTV admits that is "most" markets.
