Download Images to View Ever Wonder About the Fees That Make Up Your Monthly Cable TV Bill?

Because we're a local business, we are invested in our community, our employees, our customers, and being as transparent as possible concerning cable TV costs. With network programming fees increasing and impacting your monthly cable TV bill, we wanted to give you a backstage pass to better understand the economics of the TV business.

There are two cost buckets that make up your monthly ImOn cable TV bill.
  1. Programming Costs:

    TV providers like ImOn pay each network owner a fee for every household that receives their channel(s).
    • Approximately 80% of the price you pay for your ImOn cable TV package goes to pay the network owners for the rights to carry their channels.

    • Network fees have increased dramatically over the last 15 years. In fact, they have increased at 3.5 times the rate of inflation.

    • Eight media companies control nearly 90% of the TV networks/channels. While we work hard to keep these costs under control, they continue to use their size and power to demand more and more money. (8 media giants: AMC Networks, A&E Networks, Discovery, Viacom, Fox, Turner, Comcast, and Disney)

    • Most programmers require that cable operators carry ALL of their channels if they want to carry any of them, which makes it impossible for operators to offer small bundles or just the most popular channels.

    • Local broadcast channels (ABC, NBC, CBS) are free over the air with an antenna. However, local stations charge cable operators high fees to provide their channels to you. If the local station's fee demands are not met, they threaten to black out their station. You're either left without your favorite shows, or you get a higher bill.

    • People love to watch sports and the sports executives know it, so the programming comes at a premium. The price networks pay to air sports has caused your cable TV bills to double over the past decade. The NFL alone makes over $7 billion per year for just broadcast rights to air their games. Combine that with the MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS, college, and other sports and you can quickly see the impact.
  2. Remaining Costs to Provide Service:

    This includes installation costs, maintaining and upgrading our network infrastructure, and normal business expenses, such as employee salaries, rent, and power. These remaining costs to provide service are less than 20% of your ImOn cable TV bill.
At ImOn, we work hard to deliver the best services for you and your household. To learn more about how we are working hard to keep your costs in check, visit www.TVOnMySide.com.
