Since its introduction in 2015, Sony's PlayStation Vue joined the trend of alternative cable service providers with a flexible (and affordable) means of accessing cable programming, though subscribers will be seeing a small price hike taking effect starting at the end of the month.

Operators of virtual services are trying to hold the line on low price points, enticing consumers who are turned off by the increasing costs of traditional pay TV services.

Cord Cutters reported that the price increases will go into affect on July 26 for new customers.

AT&T's DirecTV Now streaming video service will soon hit your wallet harder. Like I said, all tiers, so that includes the $35/month Live a Little package all of the way up to the $70/month Gotta Have It. This will bring the entry-level "Access" plan to $45 per month, having previously been set at $40.

According to Benefield, the change in cost for subscribers is simply down to Sony's own costs increasing. "Unfortunately, we must increase the price of our multi-channel plans to keep pace with rising business costs and enable us to continue offering a better way to watch the best in live sports, entertainment, and news". So if you're using this on Android TV or Apple TV or Roku or whatever, it might be time to check that monthly bill and make sure you're getting what you pay for.

AT&T confirmed the price increase to Ars Technica and said it began informing customers of the increase this past weekend. Let us know down in the comments.
