PlayStation Vue is raising prices for everyone
What you need to know
- New customers will pay $5 a month across all of the PSVue plans.
- Existing customers will be grandfathered for a month or so.
- Why? Because costs are rising, Sony says.
Few things in life are guaranteed. Death. Taxes. And streaming services increasing their rates at some point.
The latest to do so is Sony's PlayStation Vue. The PlayStation blog dropped the bad news today. Let's break it down:
Gotta love that. Start with the positive, right? This really is all about you, and making your experience better. It's just, ya know, going to cost you more.
And here we go. It's not their fault — all this content costs more now! And that's almost certainly true. (In fact, we've said for quite some time that we should expect costs to continue to rise. The "good" — if there's any to be had here — is that current subscribers get a reprieve for a month. But that's about it. The simple fact is that all of PSVue's plans are going to get more expensive by the tune of $60 a year.
Hey, look. I don't argue with any of that. PlayStation Vue has long been an excellent choice, with all sorts of options. But simply restating those options doesn't change the fact that they're now going to cost you more.
No, thank you, PlayStation Vue.
