Sling TV has announced it is raising prices, citing increased programming costs and rising inflation.
Sling TV is one of the more popular streaming TV platforms, appealing to users with its low pricing and à la carte package selection. Unfortunately, users are in for a price hike, with the company sending out an email to explain the increased charges.
“Thanks for being a valued Sling TV subscriber,” the email reads.
“Sling always fights for our customers and works with programming partners to keep costs as low as possible. Due to a continuous rise in programming costs and record inflation, Sling Orange + Sling Blue will increase by $5.”
The company does say that the price increase will not apply to extras, premium channel pricing, or other Sling TV services.
