Why am I paying five dollars a month surcharge for regional sports, when I don't watch sports

I guess the question to be asked is who requires this charge. I don't watch any sports

    I'd better quickly chime in before Cox locks this post.  Cox hates subscribers sharing billing information.

    You only pay $5 for this scam?  I have to pay $7.  And what's a Broadcast Surcharge ($10) and what am I broadcasting to be charged said $10?

    And ever since Cox transferred telephone service to the Internet, why is Cox still charging for long distance calls?  I can freely Zoom someone in Alaska but if I call Alaska, I'll be separately charged for using less data?  Aren't telephone calls just IP packets nowadays?

    Was does everyone just want to rip us off every day.

      Jonathan J  this was posted in the tv forum not app forum.  Bruce the broadcast surcharge pays for the rebroadcast of the local tv channels
