Easton Velocity cable programming packages will increase between $3.90 and $6.55 after cable networks and local broadcast affiliates have increased what they charge Easton Velocity to carry their programming.
“Unfortunately, we have little control over what the networks charge to provide the content,” said Ted L. Book, Director of Easton Velocity. “Our goal is to negotiate the lowest costs for programming and to provide customers with quality service; however, the fees to ensure access to popular channels like ours continue to get more expensive.”
Cable networks and broadcast affiliates charge all cable and satellite companies, including Easton Velocity, a per-subscriber fee to carry their programming. These fees increase on an annual basis and are re-negotiated every three to five years. Easton Velocity passes along these increases and does not receive any profit from the additional costs. Other regional television providers recently announced rate increases as well.
Effective with bills rendered in February, Easton Velocity’s new cable rates are:
|Package||Rates effective with bills
rendered on or after February 1, 2021
|Tier 1||$ 58.70|
All Easton Velocity cable packages including any of these programming tiers (including the Triple Play package) will increase with the new rates.
