How Do Networks Control Pricing?
Network programming is the single, largest cost on your cable bill, but why is that?
During our annual negotiations, networks ask for huge increases in their fees, and Service Electric must negotiate to keep these costs under control. ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX are free if you use an antenna, so why do they charge outrageous fees to carry their content on cable TV? It all goes back to “Retransmission Fee” legislation from decades ago!
