I just received my first bill after renewing my verizon contract, and discovered a charge that the rep didn't mention.  $2.98 Regional Sports Network Fee.   This was not on my previous bill (under the old contract.)  Why am I paying for something I don't use??   Just came from SanFrancisco.  Restaurants are tacking on a 1-4% "Employee Benefits Surcharge" to the bill, besides the 8.5% sales tax.   I used to be that businesses paid their own operating expenses out of regular income.  They worked harder to may a bigger profit.   Gotta keep those profits up!


Is there a reason why you are replying to a 4 year old thread?

If you read the many posts in this thread you'll see why you have to pay a RSN fee now.

It's because sports networks increased their fees that cable providers have to pay them per subscriber. They are passing part of this increase onto the consumer to help keep costs down elsewhere. Thank the sports networks.

Regardless on if you watch the channels or not if you have sports channels on your package then you have to pay this fee. If you don't want to pay the fee, change to the very basic channel package which has no sports channels or don't have service at all.

Almost all providers are charging a rsn fee now...if they arent they will.

I'm sick of paying a fee for sports that I do not watch. If Verizon wants to pass this fee on to non-sports consuming customers, then Verizon should also offer contact information for customers to fight the fee!

 

Please advise company contact and elected official contact information because I'm fed up with an ever-increasing fee for sports organizations who do NOT need the money; they're filthy rich as it is.

You now have the option of selecting the Custom package and not selecting sports packages.

if you have a contract you do not have a choice to rid onself of sports channel.  I was told that was only for new customers.  I hope I am wrong.  I would like to select my own.

Not true at all. Even if you are in a contract you can change the channel packages (including the custom hd with no sports) anytime you want and retain the current agreement. All you need to do is sign into your account online and go to the add/change services section.

Yes you can. But typically the moderators come along and close posts that are to threads that haven't had post in more than 2 years.
