a516digital first reported last week that Sky was preparing to start what has now become its usual cycle of price rises, which involves increasing TV prices in summer and broadband and telephony charges in winter.
Subscribers with the Original TV bundle will see a rise of between £1 and £2.50 per month, or £24 and £30 per year (dependent on the amount they currently pay), while those with the Variety, Family or newly launched Sky Q or Sky Q Silver bundle will see bills go up by £2 per month - or £24 per year.
The price of Sky Movies is increasing by a £1 and Sky Sports will go up by £2 a month. Subscribers paying for both will see an increase of £1.50, although for HD users it gets more complex, with no extra charge being added to Sky Movies HD from June, but a increased charge for Sky Sports HD. Multiroom is increasing by 75p a month.
With many viewers enjoying special deals with Sky, subscribers can now check how the changes will affect them personally by logging in to "My Sky" and checking their account. Additionally, Sky says it will contact subscribers during the course of the next month via letter or email with details of the changes.
From this summer, viewers without a Sky Sports subscription will be able to watch a selection of sports via Sky Sports Mix. Sky Q viewers meanwhile will be able to gain access to Sky's new Ultra HD service.
