Now this puzzles me, isn't 120+, for example, inclusive of the RSN? I always took the + as the surcharge.
Yeah...I did too. The surcharges aren't too much though - I punched in some zip codes for places that still have RSN's, and the largest surcharge is $1. Quite a bit different than DirecTV. Interesting though - California and Boston have no surcharges - makes me wonder if Dish's contract with the rest of the NBC Sports RSN's and NESN will be ending at the end of the year.

I see a $3 surcharge to the SF Bay Area in California.

Thanks - I missed that. I did it closer to LA, which is the area I am more familiar with. Maybe the contract won't expire then.

Interesting. Our DMA receives the same RSN's as San Francisco but our RSN Fee is going to be $1 instead of $3

Is the Regional Sports Surcharge only charged if you are receiving your Regional Sports channels? I put in my zip code 43064 for Plain City, Ohio and it listed the surcharge as $1. Yet my 2 Regional Sports channels Fox Sports Ohio 412-15 and Fox Sports Cincinnati 412-17 are still removed. If Dish is planning on getting those channels back I will gladly pay the extra $1 to be able to watch my Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds.

Hmm... I guess I'm sort of lucky, my zip code has no surcharge.

Of course we don't have our RSN either.

Where our wheels go
My NY billing address ZIP code has no surcharge, but my VT service address ZIP has $1 charge, so I presume it's the Burlington DMA part that gets tagged, not the Albany DMA. I expect they charge by the service address rather than the billing address, so it'll be interesting to see what I get charged as I move around GA, FL, and NC over the winter months.

In the end, I am surprised that it went up by $5 for most packages. After having many RSN's dropped this year, and with those being such a big cost, I thought we would have seen something like $2-$3 for all packages instead of the $5.
