Spectrum increasing prices for NY customers in two weeks: How much will your bill go up?

Spectrum customers in New York are set to see an increase in their service bills starting January 30, with price hikes ranging from $2 to $5 across various services. The most notable changes include the Spectrum Internet Assist program for low-income households, which will rise by 25% to $24.99 per month, and the Advanced WiFi service increasing from $5 to $7 monthly. Additionally, the broadcast TV surcharge will go up to $25.75, and the HD Box rental fee will increase to $12.50.

Charter Communications, Spectrum’s parent company, attributes these increases to the rising costs of content from programmers. Lara Pritchard, Vice President of Communications, emphasized the company’s efforts to negotiate agreements that offer value and choice but acknowledged the industry-wide impact of these higher content fees.

To mitigate these costs, Spectrum is offering the XUMO Stream Box, which could save customers the monthly cable box fee. The device is available for $5 monthly or a one-time purchase of $60. Additionally, Charter Communications is including the ad-supported version of Disney+ in all Spectrum TV Select packages at no extra cost, with plans to also offer ESPN+ in the Spectrum TV Select Plus package soon. Customers can activate their Disney+ Basic subscription via the Spectrum website.
