(NEW YORK) -- TV viewers may have to pay a little more to watch their favorite shows, as cable providers across the U.S. begin to raise prices.
DirecTV customers will see a price hike of around four percent starting Feb. 10. For customers that are a part of an introductory plan, monthly plans will remain the same, but old customers will be shelling out more money for the cable provider's various plans. The lowest package will jump from $39.99 to $44.99.
Moreover, Time Warner customers are expected to see a seven percent increase and Cablevision will raise rates to around three percent, according to the TheStreet.com.
DISH Network prices will also hit a high with some customers paying 12 percent more beginning in February.
