DirecTV customers, your monthly bill is about to get slightly more expensive. The satellite provider will be raising prices across various tiers of service by an average of 3.7 percent in February. The slight bump isn't out of the ordinary for DirecTV; as Variety points out, the company has raised prices each year for the past decade. DirecTV's all-inclusive Premier tier will increase from $124.99 to $129.99. Still, DirecTV insists it's not sticking its customers with undue charges. ”In 2014, the programming fees we pay to the owners of these television channels will increase about 8 percent, but DirecTV is adjusting the average prices our customers pay by less than half of that amount,” a spokesperson told Variety.
