Virgin Media customers will be expected to pay up to eight per cent more if they have Sky Sports and/or Sky Movies.
Sky is increasing its wholesale costs, with monthly fees for Sky Sports going up by £2.50 and Sky Movies costing an extra £1 a month.
This means that Sky Sports subscribers will have to pay an extra £30 a year, while people with Sky Movies will have to pay an additional £12 a year.
Virgin Media has therefore confirmed it will have to reflect these increases in the prices it charges to customers from June 1st.
Subscribers will be able to cancel their contract within 30 days of being informed about the price hike if they have the affected channels as part of their bundle.
Meanwhile, anyone who has Sky Sports and/or Sky Movies as a monthly bolt-on can cancel these without charge if they give 30 days notice.
