DirecTV Now Getting $5 Price Hike

AT&T’s DirecTV Now plans will get a $5 price hike

This means the intro-level "Live a Little" package will increase from $35 per month to $40 per month, while the top-of-the-line "Gotta Have It" will rise from $70 to $75 per month.

DirecTV Now has notified customers that it will raise prices across its four tiers by $5 a month.

A pair of popular streaming TV services announced price hikes for customers today. The change itself will be be implemented starting after July 31st, 2018, with the price increase to take effect with subscribers' billing statements after that date.

Belgium's time to shine at World Cup, says Hazard
Henry scored three times two years later as France added the European Championship to its trophy cabinet. Roberto Martinez's unsafe side have lived up to their billing so far, winning all three group games.

The move follows similar price increases by rival virtual MVPDs, with Sling TV announcing last week that its base price would increase by $5 to $25 a month.

Sony's PlayStation Vue provides access to five concurrent streams - more than any other virtual pay-TV service - as well as a network-based DVR that stores programs for 28 days and unique features like an optional multiview interface on PlayStation 4 consoles.

"To continue delivering the best possible streaming experience for both new and existing customers, we're bringing the cost of this service in line with the market - which starts at a $40 price point", AT&T said. That's Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra plans. The only exception is the $45 Spanish language "Todos y Mas" plan, which doesn't get the price increase. 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.
