AES Announces 2018 TV Pricing

By Chris Schweitzer, AES General Manager

AES TV customers will notice a mild price increase in monthly TV subscriptions beginning next month. The 2018 TV programming rates were sent to subscribers via bill inserts and email earlier this week.

If you’ve been with us for a while, you know we work hard to control costs. We value your business and take great pride in being Your Community Network, so we work diligently to provide you the best product at the most affordable prices. With TV, though, controlling programmer content costs is a constant challenge. TV programming rates from national and local providers continue to increase annually across the nation. AES is not immune to this trend and customers will see an increase in the cost of their TV subscription in next month’s bill.

Your AES monthly subscription will increase in 2018. The increase will range from $2.20 to $6.45, depending on the channel tier to which you subscribe – the average increase will be $4.45.

This increase is not reflective of the total increase to AES by its programmers. AES is electing to pass on only a portion of the increase to our customers as we are forecasting some channel lineup changes in late 2019 that will help to reduce the wholesale programming costs.

If you have any questions or concerns, let us hear from you:
