Vidgo is the latest live TV streaming service to suffer a price increase after upping the cost of its Plus plan to $64.95 per month. This plan was priced at $59.95 per month up until recently, resulting in a $5 price increase. While the other Vidgo plans are unaffected by the change, Plus is the cheapest live TV package that Vidgo offers.
The Plus plan is Vidgo’s entry-level package and unlocks access to more than 110 live TV channels. For those wanting a richer channel lineup, the $79.95 per month Premium plan unlocks access to more than 150 channels. Vidgo also offers an Ultimate package for $99.95 per month and Spanish-language Vidgo Mas package for $39.95 per month.
The higher price now means that the minimum cost of streaming live TV through Vidgo has increased to $65 per month. Vidgo does not appear to have officially issued an announcement about the price change yet, but it is live for anyone signing up through the website. There are no other obvious changes to the plan in terms of the DVR limitations or the channels.
It currently remains unclear when exactly the new price went into effect, but the live TV service was advertising the lower rate as recently as January 23rd. It is also unknown whether the higher price only applies to new subscribers or whether existing Plus subscribers will see their prices increase as well.
At the new price, Vidgo’s cheapest plan now costs exactly the same as YouTube TV, but remains $10 less than the cheapest plans from DirecTV Stream and fuboTV, both of which raised their prices in January. Sling TV also confirmed a price increase last month, which is due to take effect in March. However, only select subscribers will be impacted by Sling’s increase, as it is dependent on whether they get access to their local ABC station.
