Soccer Fans Beware, DirecTV to Raise Prices for Satellite TV in 2014: Daily Soccer Report

In February, DirecTV will be increasing the price across various tiers by an average of 3.7%, which may impact the bills of soccer fans in the United States.

According to The Verge, “the Entertainment tier will increase from $54.99 to $57.99, though existing subscribers will pay $56.99. Choice tier customers will now pay $66.99 instead of $64.99; Xtra will jump from $70.99 to $73.99, with Ultimate now $81.99 rather than $77.99. DirecTV’s all-inclusive Premier tier will increase from $124.99 to $129.99.”

DirecTV argues that “In 2014, the programming fees we pay to the owners of these television channels will increase about 8 percent, but DirecTV is adjusting the average prices our customers pay by less than half of that amount.”

During the past decade, DirecTV has increased prices every year.
