“We’re making several adjustments to pricing for DIRECTV STREAM starting January 23, 2022. You’ll see the new pricing in your monthly service fee,” DIRECTV STREAM says in a note on its support page.

“Due to increased programming costs, we’re adjusting the price of our video packages. Periodically, TV network owners increase the fees they charge DIRECTV STREAM for the right to broadcast their movies, shows, and sporting events. In addition, this year we have experienced higher-than-normal inflation across our suppliers.”

Those who are using DIRECTV STREAM with a “contract introductory offer” will be able to keep their discount until the promotional period ends.
