Rate Changes Effective January 1, 2019
Programming costs play the biggest role in rising TV bills. The networks you like to watch are charging cable providers like TDS® more and more money to distribute their programming.
Although we do our best to negotiate reasonable rates for the content you enjoy, sometimes network demands (like forcing us to carry low-interest channels) drive increases. We absorb as much of the increase as we can. However, in 2019, a portion of the increase is being passed along to customers.
As of January 1, 2019, the rates for the following TV packages are increasing:
- Freedom, Expanded—$3/mo.
- Digital Starter—$3/mo (Socorro only)
Also, the Broadcast Retransmission Fee (broadcast fee) will increase $2.39/mo. To learn more about the fee and broadcast negotiations, visit our Broadcast Retransmission page.
Please note: TV package rate increases apply to non-promotional prices only. The Broadcast Fee increase applies to all video customers.
