    After enjoying a string of price reductions over the last year, Sky subscribers are set for a price hike on April 1.

    The price rise was announced this morning. It turned out to be a case of particularly bad timing for the pay TV broadcaster as the insurgent Spark revealed the low-cost pricing for its new Spark Sport app at the same time.

    Fellet said subscribers should expect an increase of an average of 1.9 per cent, which he noted was well below the consumer price index over the last three years.

    The Sky Starter pack would be going up from $24.91 to $25.99, Sky Entertainment from $25 to $25.50 and Sky Sport from $29.90 to $31.99.

    "It was a tough decision and one that we hated to do, but at the end of the day if we want to keep the content that subscribers want, I'm hoping that they'll understand the impact and see the benefit," said Fellet.

    The average Sky consumers spends on average $75.82 on the service per month. This figure does, however, increase to $84.23 when limited to satellite-only users.

    On the flip side, Sky also announced that it would be canning its HD fee, instead allowing all users to access its HD channels. This would see some customers get a discount of $9.99 from their monthly subscription.

    "There will be certain people out there who don't even know that they have the option of HD, so they'll see a dramatic increase in quality," said Fellet.

    The reason for the RWC decision is simple. If they were to embed the costs of the RWC into the subscription price they'd need to up that price and add term to it (similar to how Sky does with Fanpass, e.g. 6 months @ ~$60). This could turn off users who would only sign up for that product.

    By having it as a separate package it means they don't need to add term and increase the base product for a one off event, considering most of their products are season long.

    I don't mind not having the Rugby World cup included, I wouldn't watch it, so I don't wanna pay for it. I wonder if spark will do a more modular thing, or will that end up too confusing and too much like sky?
