Today PlayStation Vue raised its price by $5 a month on all of their plans. Now PlayStation Access costs $49.99 a month. This all comes after Sony reached new deals with AMC, Discovery, NBC, and Turner to keep their channels on PlayStation Vue.
Now the Access package costs $49.99, the Core package costs $54.99, Elite package costs $64.99, and the Ultra package costs $84.99 a month. Sony has yet to announce the price hike, but the new prices are now live on PlayStation Vue’s website. Back in July of 2018 PlayStation Vue also raised its price $5 a month.
PlayStation Vue will be adding the NHL Network as part of this new price hike.
“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 made the decision 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 said in a statement on their website.
Sony went on to say “We will continue to focus on making PS Vue the premier destination for live TV streaming, with top networks including HBO, FX, HGTV, ESPN, and NFL Network, in addition to over 650 local broadcast stations. The recent addition of beIN Sports, and soon to be launched NHL Network and ACC Network, will ensure PS Vue has the most robust assortment of national sports channels. While PS Vue already offers unique features such as multi-view on PS4 and Apple TV, the most simultaneous streams at home, and conflict-free DVR (all at no additional cost), we will continue developing new integrations and functionality to enhance your TV viewing experience.”
