Here we go again. Just two days after DirecTV Now increased subscription prices on all of its plans by $5 a month, PlayStation Vue is following suit.
All of PSVue's multichannel plans will see the $60-a-year price hike, Sony VP Dwayne Benefield wrote in a blog on Tuesday.
At PlayStation, we are always evaluating the PS Vue service to ensure we are providing a compelling value to our customers. 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.
PS Vue customers will continue to enjoy the rich features that come with their monthly plan, including an industry-leading five simultaneous streams, powerful cloud-based DVR, and unique features, such as multi-view on PS4 – all at no extra cost. Customers will also continue to experience one of the most robust line-ups of channels from top networks such as Discovery, AMC, Disney/ESPN, HGTV, Food Network and Turner, as well as local broadcast stations and sports league networks. We'll also continue to offer standalone channels without the need of a multi-channel plan, such as HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and more.
We vow to continue providing exceptional service to our customers, with plans to add more broadcast stations and content that resonates with fans, as well as ongoing feature enhancements. PS Vue was recently listed as the top pay-TV streaming service by the American Customer Satisfaction Index, and our goal will be to maintain this positioning as we continue to enhance the service. As a reminder, if you do not wish to continue your subscription, you can cancel at any time, either on PlayStation consoles or online at psvue.com/subscription.
Here's how the new plans break down:
- Access ($44.99): This is the most basic package you can get with PlayStation Vue. You get 20 channels, from AMC to CNN and Fox News, to ESPN and Disney, and more.
- Core ($45.99): This package adds in sports channels like MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, and regional sports. You'll also get the Cooking Channel and additional movie channels.
- Elite ($59.99): This'll get you BBC World News and a bunch of movie channels (including some great bad movies on demand) that you never knew existed.
- Ultra ($79.99): This is everything in the Elite package, but with HBO and Showtime (east and west for both) added in. And that's not a bad deal at $10 each per month, which both of them costing more if you were to get them separately. You'll also have access to the Showtime Anytime app, And HBO Now apps.
The change will essentially take effect at the same time as DirecTV Now's — starting July 24 for new subscribers, and after July 31 for existing subscribers.
