The site found that the average monthly cable package costs $217.42.
That's more than the average household's monthly utility costs of $205.50.
Due to promotional pricing and bundled services, it's hard to answer
"How much is cable a month?"
The FCC publishes a biennial Report on Cable Industry Prices. The las
t update was in 2018.
At that time, it found cable companies were charging the following average prices:
– Basic service: $25.40 per month
– Expanded basic service: $71.37 per month
Knowing average package pricing may be more helpful than TV-only serv
ice pricing because many people buy bundled packages.
CableTV.com found average bundled plan prices: $129.05/month for TV
and internet $144.95/month for TV, internet, and phone

ths to a year. If your bill has skyrocketed since you signed up, you may want to reconsider.
