Once again, PlayStation Vue is giving away free upgrades to its Elite package but don’t expect an email telling you that you got the upgrade. Several readers today told Cord Cutters News that they just suddenly saw a ton of additional channels in their PlayStation Vue app. This is not the first time that Sony has given away free upgrades to their Elite package as they have a history of handing out random upgrades running from a weekend to 6 months in length.
This upgrade will give lucky PlayStation Vue subscribers access to the $54.99 a month Elite plan that includes 90-plus HD channels. After the free upgrade ends, subscribers will automatically be returned to the plan they had before the free upgrade. According to our readers, the upgrade to the Elite package will end in July 2018.
Sony still has not commented on how it is picking which PlayStation Vue subscribers will get the upgrade. For now the selection seems to be almost at random because we first suspected that former Slim subscribers got the upgrade in exchange for the upcoming price hike; however, other readers say they already pay the higher price and still got the free upgrade.
If you want to find out if you got the upgrade and how long it will last log into your account and look at your account settings.
