If you get your cable through Spectrum, prepare for your bill to inexplicably go up next month. According to the Los Angeles Times, Spectrum will increase its "broadcast TV" fee -- which subscribers pay to access local channels -- from $9.95 to $11.99 on March 1st. This in itself shouldn't surprise cable subscribers, as fee increases are a dime a dozen lately, but the hike comes just four months after the same fee was increased from $8.85.
As the LA Times explains, this is said to be the result of a recent battle between Charter Communications (the parent company of Spectrum) and Tribune Media. Multiple channels were dropped from the service last month, but the two sides eventually settled, and the new price is theoretically to help Charter recoup the costs.
