Sony has discontinued PlayStation Vue’s beloved Slim package, which was available in most parts of the United States for $30, bumping the starting price of the service up to $40 per month nationwide.

“The transition to standard pricing for all markets was always part of our roadmap since we launched PlayStation Vue and began rolling out local broadcast affiliates in markets with Slim plans,” a Sony representative told CNET.

With the price hike, PlayStation Vue matches the cost of Hulu with Live TV and is $5 more expensive than DirecTV Now and YouTube TV, and double that of Sling TV’s base membership.

Customers who signed up for the Slim package before July 6 can continue use the service for the original price for three months, after which it’ll increase to the new rate.
