How Much Is Your Cable Or Satellite Bill?

In the past few weeks, I’ve been reading several comments from readers who are complaining how expensive it is to watch soccer on television. Of course, it’s all relative. Based on the quantity of games shown, it’s probably the best bargain we’ve ever had. But it made me think. How much is each of us paying to our cable or satellite TV company to watch the Beautiful Game?

If you’re like me, 75% or more of the TV I watch is soccer. So, when I pay the cable bill (Comcast, in my case) each month, most of that money is going to pay for my soccer expenses even though I have 100’s of channels available and I watch hardly any of them.

My Comcast Cable bill each month is $98. For that, I get:

  • FOX Soccer Channel (in SD),
  • GolTV (in SD),
  • HBO,
  • ESPN, ESPN2 (and access to ESPN3.com),
  • HD service,
  • Broadband Internet access,
  • DVR rental ($15/month), but
  • No FOX Soccer Plus.
Since I don’t have FOX Soccer Plus, I end up paying $20/month extra to get FOXSoccer.tv.
