Due to content cost increases from TV networks owned by A&E Networks, AMC Networks, CBS Corporation, Discovery Communications, Disney/ESPN, FOX Networks, NBCUniversal, Scripps Networks Interactive, Turner Networks, Viacom, regional sports programmers, independent channel providers, and your local broadcast channel providers, Wave’s Cable TV rates will be adjusted in September.

The monthly rates for the following TV services will be adjusted: Local TV Stations’ Fee will increase by $1.74; Expanded Content will increase by $5.00; Premium channel tiers (HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, STARZ) will increase by $1.00 each; Universal Converter set-top boxes will increase by $0.95 each.

While Wave strives to keep prices as low as possible, we – and our entire industry – continue to face dramatic increases in the costs large corporate broadcasters and cable networks charge for their content. These networks are charging increasingly higher fees to make up for lost advertising revenue due to fewer consumers watching their programming. When network owners increase their monthly fees, we pass through the increase to customers subscribing to that tier of service.

Further details on all rate changes will be included in your September bill statement.  Thank you for choosing Wave.
