About Our $0.04

Starting today, subscribers who are new to our streaming service will see a small price increase: 4 cents. SubPass monthly subscriptions will now cost $4.99, and All-AccessPass monthly subscriptions will cost $7.99.

 

If you’re currently subscribed on any plan, you can keep your couch cushions full because you will NOT see this price increase at all. This increase only applies to newly created accounts, or canceled accounts returning back to the streaming service.

 

Again, if you already have a subscription, nothing changes for you – even if you’re paying monthly. Should you choose to cancel, your subscription would then be at the higher price when you come back.

 

If you have any other questions about this increase, please just drop us a line!
