Every year, the major cable networks automatically increase the cost of airing their channel. In addition, the local broadcast TV stations demand a monthly fee to be paid by cable viewers. These costs increase ever year, which unfortunately means, the monthly cost of TV will increase, as those charges are passed on.
Our goal is to manage your monthly bill by fighting against excessive TV network fee increases from large, powerful media conglomerates. That’s why we are a member of the NCTC, a buying group of more than 900 independent cable and broadband companies across the United States. This allows us to negotiate as one larger group to gain the cost benefits that the larger providers enjoy, while still enabling us to provide home-town service to our customers across the CSi FIBER Network.
The Fargo Broadcast TV stations demanded large increases for 2015 for what they call "free TV". Discovery Networks (Discovery-TLC-Animal Planet) was seeking increases multiple times the rate of inflation. 50 cable networks such as ESPN - CNN - Fox Sports are also increasing their cost Jan 1, 2015. Refer to notice mailed to you Jan 2015.
