Why have YoutubeTV, DirecTV Now, Sling and Hulu Live all raised their prices?

Live TV Streaming Service

As we covered in our articleAre live TV streaming services just Cable 2.0?Live TV streaming services all seem to be raising their prices very similarly to the way it used to be with your "Old" service.

Below is a breakdown of what those price increases are and what you get for the extra money you are being charged each month.

YoutubeTV - Raised the price to $40 from $35 In February 2018. The end user received nothing extra.

DirecTV Now - Raised the price to $40 from $35 In August 2018. The end user received nothing extra.

Sling - Raised the price of their smaller packages by $5 in July 2018. The end user received nothing extra.

Hulu Live - In October 2018 Hulu announced that they are removing 5 channels form their service. You can get these 5 channels back by adding a $5 add-on bundle to your service. Effectively they raised the price of their service by $5. Or you can look at it as you get 5 less channels for the same price as before.

The two topLive TV Streaming Servicesare owned by satellite TV companies, so it seems natural for companies that have slowly raised prices over the years to continue to do the same thing. Unfortunately this is not a trend that we will soon see go away. It is our opinion that this is going to continue the same way it did with your "Old" provider. $5 here, $5 there and boom, your new monthly bill makes your eyes pop and your jaw drop! "How did my Live TV Streaming Service get so expensive?"

Does any of this sound familiar to you? Kind of like a bad case of Deja Vu? If so, you are 100% correct. This is exactly the same thing as before, just with a new medium hence why we call it Cable 2.0. Same thing different form.

Here at SkyStream TV we don't believe in this model. We believe that a service should stay the same price as the day you signed up. We don't believe that just because we are paying a little bit more for extra channels that we need to pass along that cost to our customer with a nice and healthy mark up. We don't believe in bait and switch tactics.

We believe in offering a quality Live TV Streaming Service for a fair price and to keep that price so you know exactly how much you are paying for a great channel lineup. We got sick of the "Old" guys for the exact same thing the "New " guys are doing. We understand that it is in their DNA and that they will never change. Unfortunately for them switching to a fair and honest Live TV streaming Service likewww.skystreamtv.comis as easy as signing up for a FREE 7 day trial, downloading the app and signing in. It's really just that easy to tell these Live TV services that you don't appreciate your prices being raised continuously or being baited and switched. Tell them with your money. Eventually once enough people unsubscribe to them after another price hike, they may start to see the big picture. Probably not, but a shrinking customer base is the best way to try and tell them you are tired of being ripped off.

If you don't like raising prices with nothing in return please feel free to join a fair and honest, locally and family owned, United States based Live TV Streaming Service called SkyStream TV.
