Confused by your Xfinity bill? Learn more about some hidden fees you can expect and what they mean.

If you’re currently an Xfinity customer, you may have noticed a few changes to your channel lineup lately. For instance, the absence of Turner Classic Movies. You may be wondering why the change took place and how Xfinity can even do this without your approval.

The answer is simple and it’s outlined in the fine print details of your contract. Here are a few fees hidden in that fine print that Xfinity customers should expect on their upcoming bill and what they mean for service changes and price hikes in the future.

Xfinity TV fees

Xfinity TV customers can expect the most additional charges on each monthly bill and potential changes to their lineup based on programming costs. Take a look at some Xfinity TV fees that may appear on next month’s bill and what they mean for your service going forward.

Optional Xfinity TV charges

Customers that choose to add premium channels, HD or standard DVR service and multiple TVs to an Xfinity TV plan can expect to see some additional monthly fees associated with each feature.

Xfinity Voice fees

Conditional Xfinity fees

Fees for early cancellation, late payment or reactivation only appear on an Xfinity monthly bill if a customer cancels their contract or fails to pay their monthly bill.


How do I get out of an early termination fee?

If an Xfinity customer attempts to cancel service before the end of the agreed-upon contract, an early termination fee will be assessed depending on how much of your initial term remains. This fee amount can be found in the Legal Agreements & Contract details of the account information online.

Do I have to pay the broadcast TV fee?

Any subscriber to Xfinity’s TV services will have to pay the mandatory broadcast TV fee in order to access local broadcast networks with cable TV service.

Why has my bill gone up?

If there’s an increase in your Comcast Xfinity bill from month to month, promotional pricing may have expired on your services. Xfinity subscribers can find the initial terms of their promotional agreement on their monthly bill or in the fine print account details online.

Can Xfinity change my TV channel lineup?

Xfinity may change your channel lineup at their discretion based on a number of factors. Each month subscribers are charged the broadcast TV fee outlined above. This fee is comprised of charges from TV networks to carry their channels. If Xfinity determines that customer viewership is no longer high enough to substantiate the broadcast fee to all subscribers, the network may be removed from the lineup to ensure the best value.
