Every month, Comcast pays programmers like networks, local TV station owners and others for the ability to bring their channels and shows to you. That’s right, Comcast pays the programmers – not the other way around. When those contracts near an end, we work to renew them. Typically, these business agreements are completed smoothly. However, sometimes programmers demand excessive fee increases for the same channels. That could have a major impact on your bill. In these cases, Comcast works to reach a fair agreement so that we can continue to deliver the programming that you love.
