Virgin Media customers will have to start paying more for Sky Sports and Sky Movies from June 1st, Virgin Media has confirmed. That's because Sky is increasing the price of both services.

It was thought the price hike would affect Virgin Media customers too, but now the firm has confirmed it.

The price of a Sky Sports subscription will increase by £2.50 a month, while Sky Movies will go up £1 a month. This is in keeping with the price increase for Sky customers.

Virgin Media confirmed the price hike to Recombu.

Under the new pricing structure, a basic Sky Sports package will cost £31.75 a month, on top of a Virgin TV subscription which starts at £20 a month. Sky Movies will cost £21 a month.

However, if you take both Sky Sports and Sky Movies, you'll only pay an extra £2.50 a month.

Virgin Media's bundles will also suffer the price hike. Big Kahuna Movies will go up from £74 a month to £75, while Big Kahuna Sports will rise from £83 a month to £85.50. Big Kahuna Sports & Movies will rise from £90 a month to £92.50.

You'll need to pay line rental on top of this, which costs £17.99 a month or £184 a year.

New customers will have to pay the higher prices from Friday April 29th.
