Comcast and RCN cable subscribers in Montgomery County will be subject to rate increases in 2014. In correspondence with the Office of Cable and Broadband Services the providers accredit the increase due to the rising broadcast TV surcharge fees charged by networks such as ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC and others. 
 
In addition to the broadcast TV surcharge fee, RCN customers will receive a fee increase for sports related programming. According to Keith Watkins, investigator for the Office of Cable and Broadband Services, other providers have levied such a fee in the past.
