Federal Cost Recovery Charge - DirecTV

There is a new line on my bill that reads "Federal Cost Recovery Charge on 03/04". It adds 67 cents to my bill. I looked back a year and a half in bills and it was never on any of them.

What is this charge for? Why does it increase my bill? Why is it put on my bill without any explanation?

I called the Directv Customer Service phone line. The gentleman (Indian?) could not answer my question and gave me an email address for tax support. He said someone would provide an answer if I wrote to that address. I have not received any explanation.

This question, "Federal Cost Recovery Charge," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
