A young woman is sitting in her kitchen and is loking at her receipts at home while using a smart phoneIt’s January and for traditional TV subscribers, that means it is time to pay more. We already reported on Spectrum and Comcast’s price hikes coming out later this month, now we know DISH is also raising their price.

The price hikes seem to range from as little as $1 a month on things like Regional Sports Fees to $8 a month on your base package. Many TV customers may find they are paying over $120 a year more in 2019 than they did in 2018.

Every company questioned about the price hike said something along the lines that hikes are required because costs are going up. There is a lot of truth there. Content owners are still trying to raise their prices every year. This puts companies like DISH and AT&T firmly stuck in the middle between their customers wanting cheaper prices and content owners wanting more money.

Look for this to be just the start. Last year some companies raised their prices in January only to raise fees on their plans later in the year. The tough part is even if you are rate locked, fees like broadcast TV and device rentals can still go up.
