DIRECTV Hikes Price For Sports Package

By  | 

Watching sports on DIRECTV is going to cost you more if you're a new customer.

DIRECTV is now charging new customers an extra $3 per month for a package that includes multiple regional sports networks.
The price hike is because DIRECTV agreed to pay more for new sports channels provided by competitor Time Warner Cable.

The charge quietly went into effect nationally in September with little fanfare.
