Re: No New Channels, Slew of Fee Increases This is kind of crazy considering no improvements. Not unexpected at all but... kind of ridiculous.
Did you see the same price increases in Altoona/Johnstown effective 2/1?
I didn't notice it in the bill. I'll have to look again later today. I'd expect it to be about the same.
My notice of increases came with this months bill.
My favorite is the digital receiver fee is now up to $10 a month. I had one of these that I got from Charter in 2000 for a TV in a spare bedroom. It used to be $3.95 a month then... amazing how the cost of providing a 13 year old box costs $10/mo now when it was $4 a month brand new. No longer made sense the keep it.
It's just printing money for them at this point. And it's ridiculous.
Box fees to me are the biggest scam going. Those things ABB is using have been paid for over and over again.
The only reason I still pay ABB for an HD box is I haven't committed to cable long-term with an HTPC.
