Starting in October most PlayStation Vue subscribers will see a price hike to at least $39.99 a month. This change will affect 203 markets out of about 210 markets that Sony’s PlayStation Vue supports.
A few months ago Sony announced that it is removing its less expensive Slim plans, which started at $29.99. These plans rolled out when PlayStation Vue went nationwide for markets without or with only a few locals.
PlayStation Vue announced that starting in October current subscribers who had the less expensive Slim plans would see the price hike. This means for many PlayStation Vue subscribers the next time your plan comes up for renewal in October you will pay an extra $10 a month. (The exact date it will happen depends on when your account is set to renew.)
Recently Sony has been rushing out more locals to many PlayStation Vue subscribers. Sony has yet to come out and bluntly say why it raised its price, but it has hinted that it was related to its push for more locals and content.
Now if you are in one of the original markets that already paid an extra $10 a month and started at $39.99 you won’t see a price hike. This only affected people in the old Slim plans.
So if you don’t want to pay the higher price, you need to cancel before your renewal in October 2017.
