DISH is Raising the Price of TV & Adding a Regional Sports Fee - Cord Cutters News Dish 2020 Price Increase Page New to this round of adjustments is a "Regional Sports Surcharge" that varies from $0 to $3 based on zip code. Unlike with the locals this is not optional. Their website doesn't say if this is applicable to Dish America or Dish America Silver however based on channel lineups I found for those packages online it says they include regional sports. So best bet is any base package that includes Regional Sports will be subject to this new surcharge. Zip codes that don't have Regional Sports seem to be exempt from this surcharge. Like my zip code is affected by the Fox Sports Net RSN dispute so Dish isn't carrying Fox Sports Ohio, SportsTime Ohio, Fox Sports Cincinnati. The Surcharge checker on their price increase page said my zip code had no surcharge. Below you will find the first edition of my Dish Price Increase table similar to the one I've made for DirecTV the past few years. Since I don't have Dish if you notice any errors please let me know. One thing I will say there was a "Dish America Gold" package included in the 2019 Rates but they didn't include it on the list of packages getting a rate increase for 2020. So I'm not sure if they forgot about it or it was an error. I left it out of my table for now.
