Many customers would prefer to pay for only the most popular Networks and a select group of quality, special-interest ones that appeal to them. This is something that many Cable TV and Satellite providers would like to offer, but most Networks will not allow this. Unfortunately, the powerful Programmers often have the upper hand in how we can package their Networks, and in the additional Networks that they force you to pay for.
In recent years, another new trend has developed. Network or Station owners are dictating how and what networks we sell our customers, limiting your choice and control. In addition to huge fee increases, their demands include bundling their family of networks on our most popular and widely distributed TV packages.
That means you’d be forced to pay for channels you do not want and are not asking for - channels that have little or low viewership.
We’re committed to providing you the best entertainment and keeping you connected to the things that matter most to you. We want you to know that we will continue to focus on minimizing the impact of rising programming costs for our customers. You deserve the most value from every network and show you pay to watch on TV, and delivering that value is our priority.
