Sony raises monthly cost of PlayStation Vue by $5 for all plans

Sony is raising the cost of its over-the-top, pay-TV service PlayStation Vue by $5 a month for all four tiers of customers, the company announced today in a blog post. Sony does not give a concrete explanation for the price increase, other than to attribute it to “rising business costs.” PlayStation Vue’s cheapest plan, called Access, will now cost $44.99, instead of $39.99, a month, while its most expensive Ultra package will now cost $84.99. Sony removed its cheapest Slim package last July.
