If you are still paying for cable TV, today may be the day to become a cord cutter. In many markets Comcast is raising the fee they charge for every additional TV to $5.99 a month.
So if you have three extra TVs in your home you will pay an extra $17.97 a month adding up to $215.64 a year. Over a two-year contract that will add up to a staggering $431.28.
So what is this $5.99 fee? If you have a Comcast DVR that TV is free, but now that you need a digital converter box for other TVs in the house you have to pay $5.99 a month for every additional TV. Long gone are the days of paying for cable TV and hooking up as many TVs as you want.
In some markets, it sounds like this fee has already rolled out. In other markets, it will come in January 2018.
The good news is you can still dump cable TV and become a cord cutter. With fees like this, cord cutting is looking better every day.
