Sky is raising its prices in June, affecting Sky Q customers, as well as subscribers to Sky Sports and Sky Movies.

Most packages and bundles are going up by £2 a month – these include Sky Q (so it will now start at £44 a month) and Sky Sports. The price of Sky Movies will go up by £1 a month.

According to Sky, on average customers will pay around £3 more per month. The new prices apply from June 1st for existing subscribers, while new customers will have to pay them straight away.

The Original TV bundle will rise between £1 and £2.50 a month, depending on how much customers currently pay. At the upper end, that will mean paying £30 more every year.

If you take Sky Q and have signed up to both Sky Sports and Sky Movies, the bundled packs will cost an extra £1.50 a month instead of £3.

A Sky spokesperson said that the extra money would raised would go towards making Sky a more compelling proposition. "We are always investing to keep Sky the best value entertainment choice for customers," they said. "On average, bills will rise by less than £3 a month."

There is some good news for customers. From June 1st, Sky+ subscribers won't have to pay a premium to watch Sky Movies channels in HD. That's because Sky is scrapping the £5.25-a-month charge for movies in HD.

Sky recently announced the Sky Sports Mix channel, which will offer a selection of premium live sport available to all customers, not just those with a Sky Sports subscription.
