PlayStation Vue Subscription Price Increasing

The cost of PlayStation Vue's "Access," "Core," "Elite," and "Ultra" multi-channel plans is increasing by $5 each, Sony announced today via the PlayStation Blog.

"At PlayStation, we are always evaluating the PS Vue service to ensure we are providing a compelling value to our customers," said Dwayne Benefield, head of PlayStation Vue, in the PlayStation Blog post. "Unfortunately, we must increase the price of our multi-channel plans to keep pace with rising business costs and enable us to continue offering a better way to watch the best in live sports, entertainment, and news."

This is the latest in a series of price increases for video streaming services. YouTube TV increased in price by $5 back in February when new content was added to the service. Sling TV's Sling Orange increased by $5 at the end of June. Shortly after the Sling increase, CordCutters reported that AT&T is increasing the cost of DirecTV Now by $5. 

The PlayStation Vue increase will take effect on July 24, 2018, and current subscribers will see the increased price charged to their accounts after July 31.
