Sony raises PlayStation Vue price by USD 5 due to rising costs

Tuesday 3 July 2018 | 10:07 CET | News
Sony increased the price for all PlayStation Vue multi-channel plans, Access, Core, Elite and Ultra, by USD 5 from 24 July. Existing subscribers will see this change reflected on their billing cycle after 31 July. PS Vue's add-ons and standalone channels will not be affected by this price change. The company said it increased prices due to rising business costs and a need for offering a better way to watch the best in live sports, entertainment, and news.
