Report: DirecTV Hiking Prices Soon

High-Def Digest reports DirecTV plans to bump its rates next month.

From the post:

The price increase won’t be enormous for most subscribers. Most plans are only increasing in cost by around $3 monthly. The highest rate change is for the DirecTV Premiere, which goes up by $5.99 monthly or about $72 for the year.

DVR fees will also increase, though it’s a much smaller difference. Rather than the currently established $5.99 monthly fee, DVRs will run $7 a month when the change hits on February 9th.

On the good side, the post also says DirecTV is boosting its HD capacity, allowing for more than 200 high-definition channels and expanded on demand service.
