Dear LocalTel TV Subscribers,

We are committed to continually improving your TV viewing experience and giving you the very best entertainment possible. In the past year alone, we have added new networks to our lineup and upgraded several more to crystal clear High Definition. We also offer amazing TV features like ReStart, CatchUp, unlimited cloud DVR, SureStream Mobility, WatchTVEverywhere, and much more that allow you to be in total control of your home entertainment experience. We see the benefits associated with these features and improvements as worthwhile investments that ensure you get the award-winning quality of service you have come to expect from LocalTel Communications.

As we make these investments, the networks also continue to raise their broadcast rates each and every year. While we strive not to pass these on to our customers, unfortunately this year, many of the network rate increases - especially those of the local stations (ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX) - have been simply shocking, particularly given the economic crisis our country is in. They have backed us into a corner leaving us with only two options, remove their network from our lineup or give into their unreasonable demands.

  • ABC is increasing their rates by 128%
  • NBC is increasing their rates by 85%
  • CBS is increasing their rates by 35%
  • FOX is increasing their rates by 20%

In addition to this small sample, over a hundred other networks are also increasing their rates.

We know local channels are important to you and your family, especially now with so much unknown. The escape that comes from watching a Seahawk victory together or the latest episode from your favorite prime-time show, is a much needed relief, however we also know that asking you to face this alone is not what neighbors do. So while we are forced to adjust our prices, LocalTel will absorb some of the network rate increases.

Beginning February 1st, the following rates will take effect.

  • Basic Cable Service - $49.95 (increase of $11.00 or 28%)
  • Expanded Cable Service - $99.95 (increase of $12.00 or 14%)

No other tiers will have a rate increase nor will there be any internet or phone increases in 2021.

In the coming year you can expect to see more channels being upgraded to HD while we continue to add new and exciting networks to our lineup. Again, LocalTel is committed to remaining a cost competitive option for your cable TV and will continue to push back against the network's unreasonable rate increases. If you would like to help us in the fight, please consider reaching out to your local congressperson. https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/WA#representatives

We appreciate your understanding.

Thank you,
