Verizon to Tack On RSN Fee to FiOS TV
With the cost of sports programming continuing to climb, Verizon Communications starting next month will begin charging new FiOS TV customers and those on month-to-month plans a $2.42 monthly fee for regional sports networks.
"Verizon has chosen a fee of $2.42 per month (as opposed to increased TV package charges) to address the skyrocketing incremental sports content costs associated with this popular programming," spokeswoman Heather Wilner said in an email.
The fee will first take effect for FiOS TV customers in California, Texas and Florida in February, and in all remaining states in March except Maryland and Virginia, where the fee will go into effect in April.
