Sony has been operating the PlayStation Vue service for a while and has increased prices in the past. Subscribers have another price increase to deal with every PSVue multi-channel package seeing pricing go up by $5. New subscribers will be charged the new rate upfront.
Users currently on a subscription will see their prices increase on July 31. With the five-dollar across the board price increase, the base Access package is now $50 per month, the Core package is $55 per month, the Elite subscription is $65 monthly, and the Ultra is $85 monthly.
Sony wrote on the PSVue FAQ page, “With costs rising each year for content, we constantly evaluate each deal to ensure we continue to deliver the content you want while considering the overall value of each package. After reviewing this, we have decided to raise the price of all of our multi-channel plans by $5. This change starts today for new customers. Our existing customers will keep their current price for at least 30 days and will see the new price beginning on their first billing cycle on or after July 31.”
Sony does note that those who are on a Core package and have a discounted price will receive their discounted rate for the promotional period. Prices are always going up for streaming services mitigating some of the savings that come from cord-cutting.
