What is the Broadcast Surcharge on my bill?

Lumos TV (Only available in select markets)

email icon share of social media icon

Lumos, as well as all TV providers, pays fees to broadcasters so we can televise their programming to you. Since 2014 the fees Lumos pays to broadcasters have increased almost 100% and these increases have come from practically all broadcasters. The Broadcast Surcharge paid by all Lumos video customers offsets a portion of those increases. We negotiate to keep these costs down and continually evaluate the popularity of channels versus the cost to carry them. By showing Broadcast Surcharge on your bill we want to be sure you’re aware of where these price increases come from. More information can be found at www.TVonmyside.com
