The price that a consumer pays each month for a TV video package is driven largely by the fees that video service providers like MTCO digiMAX are required to pay to retransmit the programs from companies that create or package the programming (the broadcast TV stations and cable networks). Video service providers pay a set fee for every household that receives a given channel, regardless of whether anyone in that household watches the channel.
Specifically, sports channels and local broadcast TV stations have been demanding significant fees to carry their programming. Since 2011, local channels have increased by 870% and sports networks have increased by 284%.
MTCO’s goal is to protect customers from significant network fee increases, but that has become more difficult when broadcasters demand an increase that’s two, three, and even 100 times more what they’ve ever received before. As your local hometown TV provider, we are on your side and work in negotiations to fight against outrageous fee increases.
