July Rate Increases for Television

In April of 2022, the Indianola Municipal Utilities Board of Trustees approved a price increase for IMU Fiber television services beginning with July billing.

What’s changing?

The Expanded Channel Package will increase $5 from $104/month to $109/month. At this time, no other packages or services will be subject to a price increase, and all service bundle discounts will remain in effect.

Are annual rate increases here to stay?

Every year IMU Fiber sees increases in the amount we pay to channel providers.  Since IMU Fiber first started offering TV services to customers a few short years ago, we have seen the cost to provide channels increase by over 30 percent. We absorb as much of these rising costs as we can, but unfortunately, it’s not possible to forgo raising rates entirely. 

Media consolidation has given content producers more power to control pricing. Currently, eight media companies control ninety percent of the content market nationwide. This allows those large media conglomerates to force service providers such as IMU Fiber to carry lesser viewed stations in specific channel packages.

We understand that no one likes to see price increases. IMU Fiber customers are our friends, family, and neighbors. We strive to provide you with the best product at the best price possible.  To find out more about your rates and how they are calculated, please visit http://tvonmyside.com/imu-fiber/

IMU Fiber’s customer service department is available to assist with any questions between 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday. Representatives can be reached at (515) 961-9444.
