And this, in spite of the 2-year contract many of us signed that was supposed to "lock in" our monthly fees. Amazing that they can legally get away with it.
So far, Brighthouse has added an RSN fee of a buck, they now have a 6-tuner DVR which of course costs extra over the original DVR fee. Next year a $2 fee for each DTA you have, which you must have if you have anything above bare-bones basic and if you have more than one TV that really adds up. I never thought I'd say it, but I am thisclose to just dumping everything and going OTA.

I'm a 'hooker' and a knitter. I guess that makes me bi-stitchual :). Crap I say

LOL! I have to admit, the thought of not having sports at the press of a button is very depressing and it's the main reason I've kept cable. But I also look at how much I am spending every month and that's pretty depressing too. Add in the annual rate increase plus the extra boxes next year and it's a pretty good chunk of change, enough for me to say I've had enough.

The annual rate increase is just terrible, I have the same modem I have had for 4 or 5 years at least, and of course the modem is depreciating annually, yet the fee has doubled since I got it, actually I think it a little bit more than double, I'm pretty sure it started off at $3.00/month and now it's $7.00/month and all the outlet fees that have just been tacked on through the years.
