Franchise Fee

The Cable Act allows local governments to collect "franchise fees" on the sale of "cable services." The amount of the Franchise fee is set by the local government or by state law. Comcast collects and gives the Franchise fees to the local government. A Franchise agreement is a formal legal agreement with a government or regulatory agency that defines the terms and conditions under which Comcast as a cable operator may operate its cable system within the specified Federal Communications Commission community area. Comcast pays a Franchise fee to exercise the rights granted to it under the Franchise agreement. Franchise fees and tax amounts differ from one specified Federal Communications Commission community area to another, based on the franchise or other agreement in place between Comcast and such government or regulatory agency. The fees are often a small percentage of the total XFINITY TV service costs and are itemized on the monthly billing statement. Note: This fee does not include the cost of XFINITY Internet.

Federal Excise Tax (FETTX)

This tax operates like a sales tax. However, the Federal Excise Tax is imposed on a specific product or service. This tax applies against taxable customers and revenue.


Public, Educational, and Governmental (PEG) Fee

Comcast collects this fee for the city or town to support the community access cable channels and the costs associated with access TV productions. The percentage amount of the fee is stated in a town's cable license agreement. It can range from 0% to 6.25% depending on the town's community access needs. The Public, Educational, and Governmental fee is based on a percentage of the customer's cable service bill (not XFINITY Internet or XFINITY Voice). For this reason, the amount collected varies from one customer's bill to another's depending on their level of cable service.
