Charter Saddles ‘$20’ Streaming Service With $6 in Bogus Fees

[W]hile Spectrum Stream is advertised at $20 per month, Charter Communications tacks on a fairly-massive (and sure to increase) $6 per month “broadcast TV fee.” And while that sounds like a sensible charge, we’ve been noting for some time how broadcast TV fees are just a clever way for the cable industry to covertly jack up the price of advertised rates post-sale. To create the broadcast TV fee, cable providers simply take some of the cost of programming and bury it below the line. – Karl Bode, DSL Reports http://ift.tt/2ueR3ts
