Recently Cord Cutters News confirmed that for the second time this year Charter is raising their broadcast TV fee in February 2018. At the start of 2017 the fee was $6.05 a month. Later it went up to $7.50 a month. Now it is going up to $8.85 a month.

That means you will pay $106.20 a year for the local TV affiliates you can get 100% free with an antenna. Over a two-year contract it will cost you $212.40.

Charter is not done. A single DVR is going to cost more: $12.99 a month. So next time you DVR a show with Charter remember you are paying $155.88 a year for that. Over a two-year contract it will cost you $311.76 just for the privilege of DVRing a show with Charter.

Hold on, Charter is not done yet. According to our contacts at Charter the cost for basic TV will go up $5 a month.

These are likely not the only price hikes coming to Charter, but these are the ones we have confirmed to be going up in early 2018.
