Sky has announced it is ‘changing’ its satellite TV subscription prices in June.

Notes on the the Sky TV sign-up pages on the Sky website advise new subscribers that Sky TV prices are changing on the 1st June.
Interestingly it does not say if subscription prices for current Sky subscribers will also increase in June.
Subscribers are advised that as part of Sky’s terms and conditions, Sky may “increase prices by up to 10%” during a minimum contract term.

No further details about the amount of the price change, or if there will be changes to the Sky package bundles as a result of these price changes.

Sky recently paid a record amount to retain Premier League football rights through to 2019, which heightened fears among fans about price changes.
