Philo is raising its price, because that's just what streaming TV services do now

Philo is raising its price, because that's just what streaming TV services do now

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die. A time to plant, and a time to reap. A time to increase the price of a streaming TV subscription, and that time is all the freakin' time. The time has come for Philo, a service that's practically built on being cheaper than pretty much every alternative. You didn't need the wisdom of Solomon to see this one coming.

Wyze is raising prices — again

Wyze is raising prices — again

Last year, Wyze made a whole lot of noise about how the new Cam v3 would deliver a bunch of enhancements for the same $20 price. Come launch day, the company couldn't hold true to its word, raising prices to $24 (before shipping) or requiring that you pay more on the side for a subscription service to get that original price. The company even buried those original claims regarding pricing when we called them out for it. Now Wyze is back with another price bump: The Wyze Cam v3 will cost $33. At least shipping is included this time.

If Spotify just increased its subscriber count by 21%, why are its prices going up?

If Spotify just increased its subscriber count by 21%, why are its prices going up?

The last few weeks have been jam-packed with Spotify announcements. The music streaming giant made some big moves, from its first hardware product to an all-new redesigned desktop experience. None are quite as controversial as yesterday's price hikes, raising subscription fees for customers throughout much of the world. All eyes have been focused on the company's Q1 earnings report, as rumors of a potential slowdown in subscribers swelled over the weekend. However, that doesn't seem to be the case.

Spotify's price hike is coming to the US, too, but only for family plans

Spotify's price hike is coming to the US, too, but only for family plans

After months of rumors about a potential Spotify price hike, it's finally happening. Affected customers have been sent emails with the bad news, and the new pricing model is set to come into effect from June 2021 for current subscribers and from the end of April for new users. The change impacts Premium Student, Duo, and Family plans in Europe and the UK, with your monthly fee set to go up by around £1-2 (€1-3). Folks in the US are luckier, though, with only the Premium Family plan affected by a single dollar. We should point out that in all cases, the "standard" Spotify Premium plan is unaffected — for now.

Disney+ is getting more expensive on Friday

Disney+ is getting more expensive on Friday

Disney+ has now gobbled up an impressive 137 million subscribers around the world. Considering that Netflix has a little over 200 million, and it's been at this game for more than a decade, it's fair to call Disney's streaming service an incredible success. But pretty soon it's going to cost a little more to get your weekly hit of Marvel, Star Wars, Disney princesses, yadda yadda.

Netflix would now like up to $18 a month to cancel your favorite shows

Netflix is following up on last year's price hike with yet another. While most folks are looking to cut costs here at the end of 2020, subscribers can look forward to paying $18 a month for the "Premium" 4K 4-screen streaming plan, or $14 a month for the Standard 2-screen HD plan. Folks using the single-screen SD "Basic" Netflix plan will keep paying the same $9 a month, though, and T-Mobile's Netflix On Us perk is not changing, though the increase will pass through if you used it to upgrade to a higher tier.

Verizon Total Mobile Protection is getting a price hike to $15/month

Given that many phones are now in the four-figure territory, it makes sense for people to want to insure them.

Starting June 27, the service will cost $15/month, up from $13, and the only bonus from this is the addition of battery replacement services.

YouTube TV now costs $50/month, existing subscribers not grandfathered in

YouTube TV started out at $34.99/month, though the price was raised to $39.99/month not long after. Google tends to grandfather early subscribers into their lower prices, like with Play Music and YouTube Premium, but that's not the case here. Even the earliest of subscribers will soon be required to pay the new $49.99/month fee.
