There seems to be an periodic price increase for Buckeye cable-TV that amounts to approx. $4.00. Now, that may seem like a petty thing but if you tabulate it over a few years it's comparable to a snowball rolling downhill. When we first subscribed to Buckeye years ago our monthy bill was about $18.00. Now it's over $84.00.
Here's a partial rundown:
April, 2010- $3.96 increase
November, 2010- $4.14 increase
March,2011- $3.93 increase
I asked the clerks at Buckeye to explain these spurious rate hikes. They stated that "We must negotiate with the programers every year. If they increase the price we must pass it on to the subscribers".
Is somebody pulling my leg here?
