When it was just Direct premerger, it was not that bad. I remember AMC, Weather Channel, Music Channels. Since ATT bought out Direct, it has increased. I feel worse for people on UVerse, their contract for ESPN is coming up.

The average rate for a local channel is over $3 for cable and Satalight to carry. I work for AT&T and for local affiliates makes up $15-$20of the package.

And that is for the ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, CW and one PBS. The sub channels are usually priced too high to consider carrying.

The recent CBS deal they wanted almost $8.

I can't believe they would even try to get carriage fee for subs. No one is calling and raising a fit because Comet or Grit isn't on their satellite. Those rely on viewers and most of the ad content is direct action, call and order your tactical sun glasses.

Some of the cable replacement streaming services carry networks like Comet that are on subs.
