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. The unexpected increase this year by Viacom to keep Nickelodeon, CMT, Spike, TVLand, Comedy Central, MTV, & VH-1 in the line-up has caused most all TV providers to change rates more than anticipated.

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.

- We know you want a good value. When networks demand huge fee increases, we work to get the best offerings at the best price so we can keep your bill as low as possible.
- You want more choice and control with your TV programming: We strive to get networks to offer their shows to you on YOUR terms, not theirs.
- We ask that networks do not hold their channel hostage from you while we are negotiating. When they pull their signal, they are hoping to get you to do their negotiating for them – and we all end up paying more.
- In a dispute, we will offer solutions and viewing options to help you get through the short time a network may typically pull its signal.
We are on your side.
