Is this going to cost more?

SO THE council is going to charge for the installation of aerials for the digital TV switch over (the switch over is in 2012 just in time for the Olympics). I have been charged by the council since August 1 2004 when the charge was 30p a week or �15.60 p

SO THE council is going to charge for the installation of aerials for the digital TV switch over (the switch over is in 2012 just in time for the Olympics).

I have been charged by the council since August 1 2004 when the charge was 30p a week or �15.60 per year.

It is now in 2009 67p per week or �35.88 per year. Now if it's to be 70p per week then my bill will only go up 3p or will it be 67p plus 70p =�1.37p?

And the aerial will only get the digital signals you will still need a digital box or a modern TV with built in digital box.

When the charge first came in 2004 I phoned other London boroughs and found none at the time that charged I also got on to watchdog (BBC) and they could not find any other boroughs in London that charged.
