After Price Hike, PlayStation Vue Is Giving Away FREE Upgrades

Just days after a price hike, PlayStation Vue is once again giving away free upgrades to its Elite package for select PlayStation Vue subscribers.

It seems like whenever something bad happens like a price hike Sony responds by offering free upgrades to Elite. If you get the upgrade, don’t expect an email telling you that you got the upgrade. You will likely just see new channels show up in your channel guide.

This upgrade will give lucky PlayStation Vue subscribers access to the $59.99 a month Elite plan that includes 90-plus HD channels. After the free upgrade ends, subscribers will automatically be returned to the plan they had before the free upgrade.

Sony still has not commented on how it is picking which PlayStation Vue subscribers will get the upgrade. For now, the selection seems to be almost at random because we first suspected that former Slim subscribers got the upgrade in exchange for the upcoming price hike; however, other readers said they already paid the higher price and still got the free upgrade.

If you want to find out if you got the upgrade and how long it will last, log into your account and look at your account settings.
