Truth in Pricing - Cable TV Companies


Airlines now are subject to the federal law of "Truth In Pricing" so the price you see on their websites and in advertising is the actual price you pay for the ticket.

The time is now to roll this change to the Cable Television companies as well. When you see an advertisement from cable companies, be it a "Bundle deal" or just for TV or Internet alone, they attach many fees and taxes on top of the advertised price, making it very misleading to the general public. You can sign up for the Cable TV deal then when the bill comes it is well over what you agreed to pay. Unless you ask specifically in advance what the bill will be after fees for the cable boxes and installation and taxes and everything else, they will not tell you. You will just get it in the your monthly statement and be surprised!

It's time for change.

Add your name to this to let lawmakers know, it's time to reform how Cable TV companies advertise their prices to the public.

Thank you!
