Why Service Fees Are Charged by Blue Stream Fiber (and Other Providers)
Our customers are important to us, and our goal is to keep our TV services competitive and affordable without compromising the service. That said, there are a few reasons why additional “service” fees and taxes are charged to TV subscribers including: government regulations or policies in the telecommunications industry, the cost of building and maintaining our network, and the increasing fees from local broadcast networks which are charged to TV service providers like Blue Stream Fiber.
Below is a description of the Blue Stream Fiber TV service fees*. Please note that fees will vary based on your selected services and your community’s package inclusions (if applicable).
Network Recovery Fee: $5.99 – Helps defray costs associated with building and maintaining Blue Stream’s fiber-rich TV and broadband network and enables us to expand network capacity.
Broadcast TV Fee: $25.87 – Blue Stream Fiber is mandated to pay broadcast fees to local TV networks as part of “Retransmission Consent” laws passed by congress in the Cable Act of 1992. Blue Stream Fiber absorbs most of the cost increases, but we pass on a portion of these as part of this fee.
Sports Programming Fee: $17.45 – This fee is charged to all video customers who have Expanded TV and above. Most sporting events are carried on popular networks like TNT, TBS, and USA and sports programming can’t be segmented out from other content.
Taxes – Sales and other taxes are required to be collected by Blue Stream Fiber as part of normal local, state, and federal regulations.
For residents purchasing retail services from Blue Stream Fiber, the above fees will apply based on selected services for the home. For residents in communities with a bulk services agreement through their HOA, Condo Association, Development or Apartment Building, these fees will only apply if customers upgrade or modify the packages included in their community’s agreement.
*Fees are current as of July, 2023 & are subject to change.
