Comcast raising prices in 2021

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Comcast is raising prices for its services in the new year.

The company will raise prices for both cable TV and Internet, according to Yahoo! Finance.

The new prices will be effective as soon as Jan. 1.

Comcast’s “Broadcast TV” fee - the amount subscribers must pay to cover the costs of providing local stations - is going up from $11.70 to $16.20 for Chicago-area customers, according to Yahoo.

The rate increase varies for each location.

TV customers will also have to pay an additional $2 for the Regional Sports Network fee.

Customers on promotional pricing will have to fork over the extra amount, since both charges aren’t part of the promo.

All on-demand subscriptions will be raised by $1 to $2 more, according to Yahoo.

Internet packages will cost $3 more.

Xfinity Home Security and Plus services will go up by $10.

In addition, there will be up to a $2.50 increase for TV boxes on the primary outlet, according to Yahoo.

Comcast will also start implementing a 1.2TB data cap on broadband usage across all 39 states where it offers Internet service.
