Broadcast TV, Sports & Entertainment Network Surcharges


Programming fees paid to networks and sports channels, plus retransmission fees demanded by local broadcasters comprise the largest cost in our business. These fees are growing at an alarming rate - faster than Grande and other distributors can absorb. To help offset just a portion of these rapidly escalating fees, Grande has adjusted the following:

  • Broadcast TV Surcharge will see an increase of $2.50 applicable to customers with Grande cable packages with Basic TV or higher
  • The Sports Surcharge and Entertainment Networks Surcharge will see an increase of $2.75 applicable to customers with Grande cable packages with Expanded or Preferred TV or higher
  • Entertainment Networks Surcharge will see an increase of $2.75 applicable to all video customers with the Preferred Tier and above to offset increases from network groups like FOX, Viacom, Turner, Disney and others.
  • A Network Access and Maintenance Fee of $1.20 will be applicable to Internet customers to help defray costs associated with building and maintaining Grande’s fiber rich broadband network, as well as the costs of expanding network capacity to support the continued increase in customers' average broadband consumption. 

We’ll continue working hard to bring you the most advanced services with outstanding customer support, while minimizing operating and programming costs. Led by a customer-focused vision, we’re dedicated to fulfilling your communication, entertainment and information needs.
